Former OSU football player sues over road rage arrest



Published: Thu, July 10, 2014 @ 5:23 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Former Ohio State football star Jim Stillwagon has filed a federal lawsuit against police who arrested him after an alleged road-rage incident two years ago.

Stillwagon was acquitted last fall on all charges stemming from the September 2012 incident in Delaware in central Ohio.

Investigators alleged a pickup truck driver was grazed by a bullet when Stillwagon fired at him. Stillwagon had been riding a motorcycle.

Stillwater said he shot out a tire on the truck to disable it after the driver repeatedly tried to attack him, then hit the driver in the head with his gun.

Stillwagon’s lawsuit alleges police altered facts and suppressed and destroyed evidence in an effort to prosecute him.

A Delaware spokesman declined to comment.

Stillwagon was on Ohio State’s 1968 national championship team.
