Former Ohio State cornerback and top draft prospect Bradley Roby allegedly was drunk behind the wheel on April 20th and was arrested on the charge of operating a vehicle under the influence (OVI), according to 10 News in Ohio.
Police responded to a report that someone was passed out behind the wheel of a car. They reportedly couldn’t get the driver’s attention, and as they opened the door, they noticed a strong odor of alcohol. Upon awakening Roby, he proceeded to fail a field sobriety test.
This would be Roby’s second run-in with the law in as many years – Prior to the start of last season, he was arrested after a bar fight and suspended for the first game. Criminal charges were eventually dropped.
In this latest incident, his agent Michael Perrett has a completely different story about what went down:
“This past weekend my client Bradley Roby was issued a citation in Columbus, Ohio for operating a vehicle while impaired (OVI),” Perrett said in a statement. “Bradley was sitting in his parked car in a parking lot when he was approached and questioned by an officer. He was fully cooperative and willingly submitted to field sobriety and breathalyzer tests. His BAC test registered a negligible .008 and after further testing at the police station, he was very quickly released on his own recognizance. There are no other charges, and we are confident that this matter will be resolved quickly and favorably for Bradley. However, as the matter is still pending, we cannot comment further at this time.”
