Maurice Clarett to Undergo Mental Health Evaluation

Columbus, OH - A judge has ordered Maurice Clarett to have a mental health evaluation.

This, after the former OSU star was arrested after a bizarre and violent encounter in which he was caught by police with four guns following a wild chase.

The judge also delayed a trial set to begin Monday on previous charges accusing Clarett of holding up two people outside a bar on New Year's Day.  

Judge David Fais ordered the evaluation against the wishes of Clarett and his attorneys, citing the events surrounding Clarett's arrest early Wednesday.

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