COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Former Ohio State football star Jim Stillwagon has pleaded not guilty in the shooting of another driver during a road rage incident last year. Prosecutors say the 63-year-old Stillwagon pleaded not guilty Monday to four felonious assault counts in Delaware County, near Columbus. A hearing to set a trial date is scheduled April 8. Police say Stillwagon was on board his motorcycle when he got into a dispute with a pickup truck driver on Sept. 30. Investigators say the confrontation spanned 14 miles and ended in a parking lot where one bullet grazed the alleged victim’s head. Stillwagon was legally carrying the gun. A defense attorney said today he considers Stillwagon’s actions ”legally justified.” The college Hall of Fame lineman helped the Buckeyes to a national championship in 1968.
