While most of the top high school seniors in the country signed their letter of intent Wednesday to play college football, Ohio State recruit Chris Carter sat in a jail cell in Cleveland.
The highly-touted John F. Kennedy High School offensive lineman was arrested Tuesday and suspected of fondling as many as eight girls while pretending to measure them for JROTC uniforms.
Cleveland Police said a 15-year-old girl told officers that Carter, 18, took her out of her classroom and into a room behind the JFK auditorium and told her he needed to measure her for the uniform.
"Once inside the room, (Carter) asked the victim to take off her sweatshirt and shirt so he could take her measurements," the police report said. "He cut off the lights. . . and stated 'I need you to take your bra off.' The arrested male than put his arms under her arms from behind and attempted to pull her bra up."
Police said Carter admitted that he had used the same ruse on other girls. Police asked him to give them the book that he used to record the measurements, and he turned it over.
