With a little more than one week to go until the 2014 NFL Draft, Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby can now move on from the April OVI charge he was facing.
According to John Futty of The Columbus Dispatch, Roby pleaded guilty Tuesday to physical control of a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol and was sentenced to 180 days in jail. That sentence, however, was suspended on the condition that Roby participate in a three-day driver-intervention program.
In addition to the sentence, Roby will have to pay court cost, but the report states that his driver’s license was not suspended.
Roby, who failed a field-sobriety test after being found by police passed out in his car, reportedly recorded a .008 percent blood alcohol when administered a breathalyzer test at the scene. That level was below the legal limit for the state of Ohio.
At least Roby has this all behind him now and hopefully it winds up being a very cheap lesson for him. It is unknown how much this incident will affect his draft stock as he already had a few character related red flags attached to him.
The Pittsburgh Steelers hosted Roby for a pre draft visit back in April and that was just prior to the OVI incident taking place.
