An Ohio State cheerleader is in custody after police said he hit three people with his car while drunken driving early Sunday morning, NewsChannel5 partner ONN reported.
It allegedly happened at the Ohio Union on High Street around 2:30 a.m.
Police said the driver, 20-year-old George Karadimas, told them he was an OSU cheerleader who did not attend the game in Texas. He was driving erratically when he hit three people standing near an emergency command post, police said.
The three people hit were an Ohio State vice president, her husband and a firefighter, police said.
The university vice president, who has not been identified, and her husband were taken to OSU Medical Center. They are both expected to be OK. The firefighter was treated at the scene.
Karadimas was arrested and charged with aggravated vehicular assault with other charges pending.
