Judge orders mental evaluation for Clarett

RACHEL HOAG / Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Maurice Clarett was ordered Friday to have a mental health evaluation after a highway chase and violent struggle with police who caught him with four loaded guns. The former Ohio State football star insisted he is competent to stand trial in another case.

Judge David Fais delayed the trial set to begin Monday on previous charges accusing the player of holding up two people outside a bar on New Year's Day.

The events surrounding Clarett's arrest early Wednesday made the evaluation by a doctor necessary, regardless of the objections by Clarett and his attorneys, Fais said.

"I clearly understand everything, and I don't know why we have to drag this thing out," said Clarett, who scoffed, smiled and rolled his head back when Fais ordered the evaluation.

Clarett, who wrote a few notes to his attorneys with his hands cuffed, said he was ready to go to trial.

Fais was concerned by Clarett's attorneys saying in published reports that they were worried about his mental health.

"It's my job," Fais said. "I have to ensure that your rights are protected."

Clarett's girlfriend, who gave birth to the couple's daughter last month, and his mother sat in the courtroom. They declined comment outside.

A delay gives Clarett time to recover from a swollen face and bruised eye from his struggle with several officers.

Fais also revoked Clarett's $1.1 million bond on the charges, meaning Clarett figures to remain in jail until the new trial starts Sept. 18.

Clarett's latest run-in with the law began when police noticed a vehicle driving erratically, prompting a highway chase that ended with police spiking the SUV's tires. Officers said they could not easily subdue Clarett because he was wearing a bulletproof vest that thwarted their stun guns.

After police using pepper spray finally got him into handcuffs, the 6-foot, 245-pounder continued to struggle, kicking at the doors of the transport vehicle. Officers also put a cloth mask over Clarett's mouth after they say he spat at them.

Clarett was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and a traffic violation, and police said more charges are possible. Bond on those charges was set at $5 million, which Clarett's attorneys said he most likely would not be able to pay.

He was driving a few blocks from the home of a woman scheduled to testify against him in his robbery trial. In that case, witnesses said Clarett flashed a gun and robbed them of a cell phone behind a Columbus nightclub.

Fais said he thought allowing time to pass between the highway chase and Clarett's trial on the robbery charges would be beneficial. The delay also will give the court more time to draw the larger jury pool that will be necessary to find impartial people because of the publicity surrounding the case, he said.

Prosecutors supported the decision for the evaluation. Defense attorneys twice objected to the order, saying they were confident Clarett was competent.

"We do not wish to see these proceedings continued at all," attorney Michael Hoague told the judge.

The evaluation could have been done over the weekend to avoid delaying the trial, Hoague said afterward.

"Instead of having the possibility of being acquitted this time next week, he'll be in jail," he said.

As a freshman, Clarett scored the winning touchdown in the second overtime of the Fiesta Bowl against Miami to lead Ohio State to the 2002 national championship. It was the last game he played for the Buckeyes.

He was suspended for the following season after being charged with falsely reporting a theft to police.

Ohio State coach Jim Tressel said Clarett called him a couple times this week, including once the day before his arrest. Tressel didn't get the calls and left Clarett a voice mail, but the two never spoke.

"I didn't get a chance to connect with him recently, but absolutely - he's in my thoughts," Tressel said.

Clarett alleged in a 2004 news article that Tressel or his staff arranged for him to get passing grades, cars and money for bogus summer jobs.

Clarett provides a "teaching moment" for other players, Tressel said.

"When you review in your mind the conversations you've had and the lessons you've tried to share, yes, anytime we don't succeed, whether socially or academically, if someone doesn't make it, or if we don't succeed athletically, it's disappointing," he said.

After dropping out of school, he unsuccessfully challenged the NFL's draft eligibility rule in 2004. The Broncos made him a surprise third-round pick the following year, but he was cut during preseason.

Clarrett is ghetto and is more comfortable in his quest to get to the big house "PRISON" than he is on the outside with us normal folk.Must have found something he liked in the showers at Ohio State .

The fact that he was lurking around the woman due to testify against him is pretty damn scary. This could of easily wound up as a tragedy. I hope they took a blood test for meth/coke. His behavior certainly would indicate a paranoid speed freak. I'm just glad that they caught him before he went postal on someone or people. He's damn lucky he's not laying in the morgue with a hole in his forehead. I've always been amused at the resisting arrest syndrome. When your arrested, it's over. Your not going to pull a Dillinger in this day and age. Bundy was pretty crafty tho.

Lawyer: Clarett has ties to alleged Israeli mobster


Waknine provided Clarett with cash, a BMW, bodyguards, drivers and beachfront lodging in Malibu, with the understanding that he would be reimbursed and receive 60 percent of Clarett's rookie contract.


That makes sense.....Clarett did not want a signing bonus when he signed his rookie deal.

What about some story that Clarett's best friend was killed/died the week of the Fiesta Bowl, and Ohio State wouldn't let him go home for the funeral? APacino would know ... supposedly Clarett was never the same guy after that ...

I heard this on Sandy Clough on 950 The Fan ... I was streaming it Friday morning.

They also had Tom Nalen in a radio interview! I didn't think they did those thiongs, but it was Nalen. Some of the nuggets Nails mentioned:
  1. - "No comment" on the QB situation, but he loves Jake
  2. - He doesn't think he's a HOF candidate ...
  3. - If Zimmerman isn't in the Hall, why even have a Hall?
  4. - He plans - right now - to play out the 3-year contract
  5. - Lepsis listens to Coldplay on his i-Pod
  6. - If not football, he wanted to go into law enforcement, FBI hopefully
  7. - He only re-signed because he thinks this team can go back and win another Lombardi. He doesn't need the $$

If your afraid of the mob then why do you run from the police, resist arrest and spit on the cops and kick the doors in the squad car. Say thank you and protect me. That's what the car says to serve and protect. Does he owe mobsters Probably! Will they ever see that money NOPE !!
