NIU isn't the only school with legal problems this off season.

KENT, Ohio -- Record-setting Kent State quarterback Joshua Cribbs was in jail Monday on charges of trafficking in marijuana and domestic violence.

According to a Kent police report, Cribbs was arrested at his home Saturday morning and charged with trafficking in marijuana, a fifth degree felony, and domestic violence, a first degree misdemeanor. He is being held without bond.

Cribbs will be arraigned in Kent Municipal Court on Tuesday. Kent State athletic director Laing Kennedy said Monday that Cribbs had been suspended from the team indefinitely but will maintain his scholarship pending the resolution of the charges.

"Right now it's a very difficult time for Joshua and his wife, Maria," Kennedy said. "As an athletic department and university, we are supporting them as they seek appropriate counsel to work their way through this."

"What has been relayed to me is that he is very remorseful," Kennedy told the Akron Beacon Journal before Tuesday's arraignment. "He is very apologetic."

According to the Journal's report, Cribbs faces a maximum of one year in prison and $1,500 fine for the felony charge and six months of local jail and $1,000 for the misdemeanor.

A 6-foot, 195-pound junior, Cribbs set school records for both season and career total offense last fall. He completed 49 percent of his passes (178 of 364) for 2,424 yards and 14 touchdowns with nine interceptions. He also ran for 701 yards on 264 carries, scoring 14 of Kent State's 22 rushing touchdowns.

Cribbs also caught a 29-yard touchdown pass to finish as the team's top scorer with 90 points.

The Golden Flashes went 5-7 overall and 4-4 in the MAC last fall -- the school's second-best record in the last 15 seasons.
