Moeller's alleged attacker identified

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

Ohio State junior linebacker Tyler Moeller will sit out the season as he recovers from a head injury, but the details of the night Moeller was attacked in Florida remain sketchy.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that a 27-year-old man was arrested for punching Moeller in the early morning hours of July 26 at Gators Cafe & Saloon in Treasure Island, Fla. Ralph G. Decker, of Kenneth City, Fla., was charged with simple battery, a misdemeanor, and released from jail after paying a $150 bond.

Moeller was in Florida on a family vacation and with his uncle when the attack happened.

The police report doesn't provide many more details. I've checked in with the folks at Gators and will post any updates when I get more information.
