While the recent OVI charges against Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby are expected to be dropped soon, a 911 call made prior to him being found by police passed out in his vehicle will likely ensure that several NFL teams will doing some last minute homework on his character.
According to a Monday evening report by WNBS-TV, the person who called 911 back in April and reported erratic driving by a vehicle matching the description of the one Roby was later found in, said the driver almost hit pedestrians.
“Hi, I’m just leaving BBR on Vine and some black Dodge Charger just almost hit a bunch of kids on the sidewalk. And now, the driver is passed out drunk on the side of BBR in black Charger with Georgia plates,” the caller stated.
Roby took to Twitter recently to state he was not driving that night, did not get arrested and was not drunk. He also posted a picture of his breathalyzer test that was administered to him and it showed his sample as being .008, which is well below the legal limit in the state of Ohio.
Roby has a court date scheduled for Tuesday and while he reportedly failed a field sobriety test at the scene, there’s probably not going to be enough evidence for the OVI charge to stick. (note: I am only an internet lawyer)
The Pittsburgh Steelers reportedly had Roby in for a pre draft visit just prior to this incident taking place.
