Greg Oden was arrested for suspected battery early Thursday morning for reportedly punching his ex-girlfriend. Our great NBA blog Ball Don't Lie has the details.

In his mugshot, Oden, a former Ohio State basketball player, was wearing an Ohio State t-shirt. However, it's not just any regular and officially licensed t-shirt. No, it celebrates one of the most infamous moments of the 2013 college football season.

The "H" in OHIO is an outline of former Ohio State OL Marcus Hall. Against Michigan last year, Hall flipped off the fans at Michigan Stadium leaving the field after his ejection. And that was after he had slammed his helmet and kicked a bench.

Hall didn't start the following week against Michigan State in the Big Ten Championship Game, but because of the nature of the rivalry, the move endeared him to millions of Ohio State faithful. And was worthy enough of a t-shirt, which is the most popular on Lamp Apparel's site.
