COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -Ohio State's third-team quarterback Antonio Henton was arrested on charges of soliciting a prostitute.
The 20-year-old Henton entered a not guilty plea Tuesday in Franklin County Municipal Court to the misdemeanor charge. Lara Baker, chief prosecutor in the city's attorney's office, said the penalty carries a maximum six months in jail and a $1,000 fine, but generally results in a small fine.
Henton, a redshirt freshman, was arrested by Columbus police Monday night near campus.
Ohio State said in a statement that Henton will not travel to Minnesota for Saturday's game.
``It's a great disappointment for our Buckeye football family, and we are very concerned for Antonio,'' coach Jim Tressel said in the statement. ``Antonio is keenly aware of the standard we have for ourselves, and that makes this even more disappointing.''
