Former Ohio State player JaQuan Lyle arrested after allegedly punching police car

JaQuan Lyle, who averaged double-digits in points each of the past two seasons for Ohio State, was arrested early Saturday near his home in Indiana and charged with public intoxication, criminal mischief to a vehicle and disorderly conduct.

Lyle is no longer a member of Ohio State's program. An OSU spokesperson said he quit the team on April 11.

According to a police report, Lyle was arrested after he punched the front door of a bar he was asked to leave. The 6-foot-5 guard then allegedly also punched a police car in front of policemen. He was booked at 2:09 a.m and subsequently released on a $150 bond.

Lyle was the highest-rated prospect in Ohio State's 2015 recruiting class that ranked fifth nationally, according to 247 Sports. None of the players from that class are still members of Ohio State's program.
