Former Ohio State University assistant football coach Zach Smith was arrested Thursday after an altercation with staff at Scioto Ridge Elementary School. 

Delaware County Sheriff’s deputies say Smith tried to pick up his children but was told he was in violation of a civil protection order sought by his former wife last year. Deputies confirmed that and then made the arrest. Smith was fired last July after he was charged with criminal trespassing following a dispute with her.
