SB Nation's Land-Grant Holy Land Investigation Leads To Sex Offender Arrest

The diligent reporting by Luke Zimmerman from SB Nation's Ohio State athletics blog, Land-Grant Holy Land, has led to the arrest Charles Eric Waugh, a registered sex offender.

In under an hour, on April 30th, Waugh tweeted at over 100 Ohio State football affiliated individuals, including players, coaches and recruits. Weird incident, but nothing to worry about, right? A little more digging by Zimmerman resulted in an email sent out by the University warning Ohio State athletes that Waugh was a registered sex offender in Kentucky.

Along with the warning text message, Ohio State has handled the issue head on, and issued an official statement on May 4th.

On May 7, a week after his twitter binge, Waugh was arrested for tweeting persons under the age of 18 — a violation of his parole.

This incident has led to the decommitment of Alex Anzalone, a linebacker out of Pennsylvania. A report on FOX Sports says Anzalone is still considering the Buckeyes.
