Report: Bradley Roby arrested in Ohio for drunk driving


UPDATE: The Columbus Police Department and prosecutors expect Roby’s case to be dismissed.

*******

Former Ohio State Buckeyes cornerback Bradley Roby picked the worst possible time to find himself in trouble with the law yet again. The cornerback, who was suspended at the beginning of the 2013 college football season for a bar fight, has reportedly been arrested in Columbus for operating a vehicle under the influence.

The OVI charge is the same as a DUI in other states and he is due in court on Friday.

Roby’s arrest was first reported by Columbus’ 10TV.

Earlier this week, Roby was announced as one of the record 30 players that will be attending the 2014 NFL Draft at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Before the latest development, Roby was considered one of the top cornerbacks in this year’s draft class and he was believed to be in the mix for the first round, so it will be interesting to see how news of the arrest will affect his draft stock moving forward.

An OVI charge can be punishable with 3 days to 6 months in jail, a fine of $250 to $1,000, and a license suspension of 6 months to
3 years.

    Was he really even in the first round to begin with? I’ll go with Verrett or the others as TT will not put up with players like that. Just my opinion!

      His blood alcohol level was.008, legally you are not impaired in Ohio until you get to .08, BIG difference. If he wasn’t a former Buckeye nothing would have been done and he would have been told have a nice night sir sorry for the inconvenience.
