Former Ohio State Linebacker Darron Lee Arrested on Domestic Violence Charges

Lee faces charges of two counts of domestic violence and two counts of assault. He was scheduled to appear for arraignment on Tuesday.

Former Ohio State linebacker Darron Lee was arrested on Monday following an alleged domestic violence incident in Dublin, Ohio. Lee faces charges of two counts of domestic violence and two counts of assault. He was scheduled to appear for arraignment on Tuesday.


According to court records, Lee's relative accused him of assaulting her during an argument. The relative claimed Lee punched her in the head multiple times and shoved her into a wall. She also said that he threw her to the ground and struck her head with his fists.


This is not the first time that Lee has been accused of domestic violence. Court records show that he was also accused of assaulting the mother of his child during a separate incident in October of last year.


During the October incident, Lee's ex-girlfriend said that he got on top of her and put his hand on her neck. She alleged that Lee told her he would kill her and their child. She also claimed that Lee punched the pillow beside her head, squeezed her throat, and struck her in the side of the head.


The argument then continued downstairs, where Lee allegedly grabbed the woman by the neck and lifted her up before swinging her around and dropping her onto the ground. Lee then went back upstairs, and the woman was able to leave the home safely with their child.


Lee played for Ohio State from 2013 to 2015, starting at linebacker for the Buckeyes' national championship team in 2014. He was selected in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft by the New York Jets and spent five seasons in the league spending time with the Jets, Kansas City Chiefs, and Buffalo Bills.


Domestic violence is a serious issue that affects many people, regardless of their gender, race, or socioeconomic status. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, there are resources available to help. The National Domestic Violence Hotline can be reached at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).
