Former OU football player accused of selling drugs could see bond revoked

A former Ohio University football player who is charged with dealing drugs in an OU residence hall may have his bond revoked in that case, after being arrested for a minor offense, and allegedly being found with stolen property in his possession.

Lorenzo D. Fisher, 21, has pleaded not guilty to four counts of aggravated drug trafficking. Authorities allege that on four dates in April and May of last year, he sold the designer drug 4-methylethylcathinone (4-mec) in OU's Boyd Hall dormitory.

He and another OU football player, Greg Windham, who was also charged, have been suspended from the team. Windham, who was facing one trafficking charge, has gone into a diversion program.

Fisher, whose home address is given as Washington, D.C., had been free on 10 percent of a $10,000 bond. On Dec. 28, however, according to records in Athens County Municipal Court, he ran afoul of police in Athens at two different times.

In the first incident, which took place at around 7:30 a.m., Fisher was charged with disorderly conduct, after he allegedly engaged in behavior while intoxicated that put himself or others at risk of physical harm. He was also cited around 5:45 p.m. for driving without a license, the records say.

That's not all that came out of the incidents, however. According to a motion filed Thursday by the Athens County Prosecutor's Office, that agency is seeking to revoke Fisher's bond.

The motion, filed by assistant prosecutor Elizabeth Pepper, alleges that when Fisher was arrested for disorderly conduct, he was found to be in possession of property that had previously been reported stolen from a woman.

Fisher had been a starting cornerback for the OU Bobcats. When arrested in August, he had already been set to miss the season's first two games as a result of a misdemeanor assault conviction.

He had had a trial scheduled in November, but that has been continued, with no new date set as yet.
