A Franklin County grand jury has indicted a member of Ohio State University’s baseball team on one count of felonious assault.
Sources tell The Sussi Report that on July 25, senior Sam Wilson assaulted a 23-year-old female OSU graduate student at a get-together on Chittenden Avenue.
It all started, say sources, when Wilson made "lewd and vulgar" remarks to the victim. When the young woman told Wilson to knock it off, sources say Wilson threw a hat at her and slapped the woman in the face with his open hand.
Sources say the victim's boyfriend and Wilson then went at it until Wilson broke free, chased down the victim and punched her in the face. According to the Columbus Division of Police report, Wilson was "heavily intoxicated."
The young woman suffered a broken orbital bone and nerve damage to her eye.
The 23-year-old Dublin Jerome High School graduate is scheduled to be arraigned on December 20 at the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas.
According to OSU’s web page, Wilson played various positions for the Buckeyes in 2020 and 2021, starting in 32 of 34 games this past season.
The Sussi Report reached out to OSU Monday morning, but there has been no response as of this report.
