2014 Draft

Report: Ohio State CB Bradley Roby Facing OVI Charge

According to WBNS-TV, former Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby is facing an OVI charge for an incident that occurred on April 20.

Roby reportedly failed a field sobriety test after being found passed out behind the wheel of a car. Per the report, officers noticed the odor of alcohol after finally gaining access to the vehicle through an unlocked door after failing to get Roby’s attention upon arriving on the scene.

Roby’s agent, Michael Perrett of SportsTrust Advisors, released the following statement to the Eleven Warriors website:

This past weekend my client Bradley Roby was issued a citation in Columbus, Ohio for operating a vehicle while impaired (OVI). 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.

Roby had a pre draft visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers back on April 11 and many project him as a first-round draft pick. You have to wonder how this latest incident will affect his draft stock and if the Steelers will remove his name from their draft board as well.

Roby was suspended by Ohio State at the beginning of last season after being involved in a bar fight. Those chargers, however, were eventually dismissed.
