Northern Illinois Linebacker Indicted in Ohio
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Northern Illinois linebacker Jamaal Bass has been indicted in Ohio on a felonious assault charge on allegations he intentionally ran into the Toledo marching band, knocking down a member, as he took the field when the teams played in November.

The Lucas County grand jury on Friday also indicted the redshirt freshman from Miramar, Fla., on a misdemeanor assault charge.

Bass was suspended after the game and his coach Dave Doeren apologized to the band and the university, saying the program was embarrassed.

The Blade newspaper in Toledo reports that a recording appears to show Bass jumping shoulder-first into the face of a band member and knocking over another.

Northern Illinois says Bass is still in school and his status with the team hasn't changed.
