COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Former Ohio State football star Jim Stillwagon has been indicted on charges accusing him of firing shots at another driver during a road rage incident last year.

Prosecutors in Delaware County north of Columbus said Friday that the 63-year-old Stillwagon was indicted on four second-degree felony counts of felonious assault, all with firearm specifications.

Police said Stillwagon, who was on a motorcycle, fired shots at the driver of a pickup truck on Sept. 30. One of the shots grazed the 41-year-old man's head.

Strillwagon, who was legally carrying the gun, is a college Hall of Fame middle guard who helped the Buckeyes to a national championship in 1968.

After being taken by the Green Bay Packers in the fifth round of the NFL draft in 1971, Stillwagon signed with the Argonauts.

During his five-year career in Double Blue, he was a CFL all-star three times and a runner-up for the league's top defensive player award in 1971.

Stillwagon was the winner of the 1970 Outland Trophy and the first-ever Lombardi Award recipient.

His attorney has said he fired in self-defense. A phone message was left at his home Friday. His arraignment is Monday.
