Ohio State dismisses two players following arrests on felony rape and kidnapping charges

CNN

Two Ohio State football players who are accused in criminal complaints of raping a woman in a Columbus apartment complex last week have been dismissed from the team, according to a statement from Coach Ryan Day.

Defensive backs Amir Riep and Jahsen Wint, both 21 and due to be seniors next season, were arrested early Wednesday on felony charges of rape and kidnapping, according to Franklin County online jail records.

One of the men allegedly told the woman to say on a video afterward that the acts were consensual, according to court documents.

Day said in a statement, "I have dismissed Amir Riep and Jahsen Wint from our football program. I am not making any statement on the criminal charges, but it is clear they did not live up to our standards and my expectations."

Wint's attorney, Samuel Shamansky, said Wint is wrongfully accused.
