COLUMBUS, OH (WOIO) - WBNS in Columbus is reporting, former Ohio State assistant football coach Zach Smith was arrested Thursday after an incident with staff at Scioto Ridge Elementary School, in Powell.

The sheriff's office said Smith's wife was at the school on Thursday and he was not to pick up their children until after 6 p.m.
