Former King High School quarterback Greg Windham has been suspended indefinitely from the Ohio Bobcats after an arrest related to drugs, according to the Athens Messenger.
Windham, 20, was arrested Wednesday by the Ohio University Police Department, along with teammate Larenzo Fisher. Fisher was charged with four counts of aggravated trafficking in drugs, each one a fourth-degree felony. Windham was charged with one count of aggravated trafficking in drugs.
The warrants were the result of an ongoing drug investigation by the Ohio University Police Department and the Athens County prosecutor's office. WOUB.org says that according to Ohio state law, each count could result in a fine of up to $5,000 and/or a prison sentence of up to 18 months for each count. WOUB also reported the charges stem from the alleged sale of MDMA (more commonly known as ectasy or molly) back in the spring.
Both players were arraigned and entered pleas of not guilty. WOUB cites a news release from the Athens County prosecuting attorney that Windham's bond was set at $2,500 with 10 percent allowed and a jury trial has been scheduled for Nov. 2.
The news came as a shock to those in the King community, who said Windham graduated high school with a 3.0 GPA.
"I had no clue," former Lions QB coach Hayward Bryant said. "I spoke to him a week ago and everything football-wise was okay. However, when these kids go off to school you don't know what's going on really unless somebody tells you."
Windham is a redshirt freshman at Ohio and was battling to be the team's No. 3 quarterback. At King, he threw for 2,298 yards and 22 touchdowns his senior season in 2011, completing 54 percent of his passes. He had offers from Cincinnati, Tennessee State, Troy and Western Kentucky before signing with the Bobcats.
