Ohio State guard JaQuan Lyle was charged with public intoxication, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct early Saturday morning in his hometown of Evansville, Ind., according to police documents.
Lyle was taken into custody by police shortly after 2 a.m. The 21-year-old was released on $150 bond. The Lantern, Ohio State’s student newspaper, obtained a police report which said Lyle punched a police car.
A police officer asked a black male, later identified as Lyle, to leave after observing him stumbling through crowd and bumping into people at Piston’s Bar & Grill. On the way out, he punched the front door and was told he would not be allowed back in. Then, he walked over to a police car and punched it while officers stood just a few feet away, according to the report.
Lyle will be a junior with the Buckeyes in the 2017-18 campaign. He appeared in 31 games and made 23 starts for Thad Matta’s team last season, averaging 11.4 points and 4.6 assists per game.
Ohio State did not comment about the charges against Lyle as of Saturday afternoon.
