Henton arrested on charges of soliciting a prostitute

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- 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
soliciting charge carries a maximum penalty of six months in jail
and $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.

"What's most disappointing to me is that our guys know deep
down what is expected. And when we err -- in other words, a player,
a coach or whomever -- that's disappointing," Tressel said at a
media briefing.

Tressel said he had not yet spoken with Henton, who could not be
reached for comment.
