As first reported by Tim May and the Columbus Dispatch, Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby was arrested early Sunday morning in Bloomington, Indiana and charged with Battery Resulting in Bodily Injury.
The charge is a Misdemeanor Class A, and his initial hearing is set for Monday, July 22 at 1:30 pm.
Roby, a preseason All-American selection by numerous outlets, was the third-leading tackler (63) on the Ohio State defense last season. His 1.73 passes defended per game led the nation last year as well.
Ohio State is expected to release a statement today regarding at least one happening over the weekend. We will have more information as it becomes available.
The following is the report released by Bloomington police.
On July 21, 2013 the Bloomington Police Department arrested Bradley James Roby (5/1/1992) for A-Misdemeanor Battery.
On July 21, 2013, at approximately 2:40 a.m., Bloomington Police were dispatched to the Dunkirk Bar, located at 430 E. Kirkwood Avenue, regarding a disturbance. When officers arrived they located Bradley James Roby being detained by private security officers hired by the bar. Bar staff, security officers, and an independent witness reported that Mr. Roby had been inside the Dunkirk Bar and had attempted to start a fight with another pattern. He was removed from the bar by bar staff. He then attempted to re-enter the bar to locate his friends. At that point he was stopped by security officers and told he could not re-enter the bar. Mr. Roby then struck one of the security guards in the chest, causing a complaint of pain. He was then wrestled to the ground and detained until police arrived on the scene.
Mr. Roby was arrested for A-Misdemeanor Battery and booked into the Monroe County Jail.
