Storm Klein faces an up hill battle to ever suit up for the Scarlet & Gray again.

Storm Klein was arraigned Saturday morning where he issued a plea of not guilty. Franklin County Municipal Court Judge Scott D. Vanderkarr issued a Temporary Protection Order (which is common in these cases) against Klein stating that he's unable to enter the home of or otherwise engage the individual who first reported the domestic violence and assault chargers.

Afterwards, Klein was released on conditional bond that requires him to abstain from consuming alcohol and/or drugs, not possess a firearm, commit any further acts of violence, and honor the Temporary Protection Order and abstain from seeing the individual who filed the charges.

As first reported by Kyle Rowland of Ohio State site Eleven Warriors, Ohio State confirmed it was Storm Klein that was in fact (as if the circumstantial evidence permitted any doubt otherwise) the individual arrested. They went on to state they were still in the information gathering stages and would have no further comments on the matter.

While there's still much to play out in the legal system, given Urban Meyer's past stances on violence against women, you have to imagine Klein will be suspended indefinitely almost immediately and though widely expected to be but a role player in this his senior season to be, he'll likely need the charges completely dismissed to have a chance for reinstatement.
