911 caller claims Roby “almost hit a bunch of kids” while driving

The facts and circumstances surrounding the recent arrest of former Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby continue to be confusing and vague.

Cited for operating a vehicle while under influence, Roby made clear that he generated a 0.008 percent blood-alcohol concentration, 10 percent of the legal limit.  But the 911 call paints a different picture.

Per in Columbus (via, the person who reported erratic driving by Roby claimed that he endangered pedestrians.

“Hi, I’m just leaving BBR on Vine and some black Dodge Charger just almost hit a bunch of kids on the sidewalk,” the caller said.  “And now, the driver is passed out drunk on the side of BBR in black Charger with Georgia plates.”

While Roby passed the breath test, he failed a field sobriety test conducted after he was found behind the wheel of the vehicle.

The charges are expected to be dropped.  Still, the 911 call provides another wrinkle that Roby needs to deal with as the draft approaches.

    Just lost yourself a few million dollars… Nice job!

    Roby will be waiting until well into the second day of the draft to hear his name called. Justifiably.

    Meanwhile, as he soars up the Viking draft board…….

    Things other than alcohol have the ability to impair.

    now he falls to the 5th round and patriots take him ……………………………………

    .08 after two hours of being drunk. He was definitely over the limit!

  9. Stiller43 says: Apr 28, 2014 9:13 PM

    If he was a .008 and that messed up, he was clearly doin some kind of drug. Just wonder which

    Day Two looks like the ceiling for this guy right now.

    Why, exactly, are the charges expected to be dropped?

  16. VondyP says: Apr 28, 2014 10:03 PM

    titans will gladly take you early in the 2nd 🙂

  17. tjacks7 says: Apr 28, 2014 10:19 PM

    How dumb are the cops in this town? Did they just quit investigating after he failed the field sobriety test but passed the breathalyzer? Someone needs to tell those guys that alcohol isn’t the only thing that can mess you up.

    .008 and almost hitting kids on the sidewalk!? In my day that was called a “one-hitter quitter”, a ” 3 beer qu…”… get the idea.

  19. brownsmakemecrazy says: Apr 28, 2014 10:24 PM

    He isnt even a good CB. I dont know why anyone would take this stiff before this even happened.

  20. nimbushex says: Apr 28, 2014 10:35 PM

    .008? How is it even possible to register something that low, isn’t that 0? Had to be taking something else.

  21. seaeagle707 says: Apr 28, 2014 11:13 PM

    Sounds to me like someone in those parts has got it in for Mr. Roby. If the cops can’t kill his chances to get signed to the NFL, well I’ll just make an anonymous phone call and………

  22. riders008 says: Apr 28, 2014 11:19 PM

    He is a 6’1″ corner who has 4.3 speed at the combine. He will be taken late first early second ….

  23. nite2al says: Apr 28, 2014 11:42 PM

    I bet 10 lawyers contacted him in like 10 minutes.

  24. dukeblue12 says: Apr 28, 2014 11:50 PM

    This is why Roby and his lawyer got out in front of it and immediately claimed he was never driving. As long as that’s the case, he doesn’t have to directly challenge the legitimacy of the 911 call.

    Eventually though, Roby will have to say who WAS driving, if he in fact wasn’t.

  25. louiedogg16 says: Apr 29, 2014 12:39 AM

    A defense attorney can argue there is a .01 error on a field breathalizer, so .008 is nothing basically. However some things don’t show up on that test…

    Since when is a Charger an SUV?

  27. 1sttimepftcomment says: Apr 29, 2014 1:18 AM

    I never believe everything I read!

    Roby’s good in man to man coverage, but in the last line of defense role he plays like he abhors violence.

    2nd rd pick now after passed out drunk episode

    While this is interesting it still should be taken with a grain of salt. People do have the tendency to exaggerate, very badly.

  30. joetoronto says: Apr 29, 2014 4:06 AM

    Hello 49ers.

  31. icematrix69 says: Apr 29, 2014 5:58 AM

    Or maybe, just maybe, he never “almost hit kids” and someone is jealous, trying to ruin his draft opportunity….

    I mean, in the same call the caller says he just seen the car almost hit some kids and then that Roby was passed out in the car. Kinda odd for someone to almost hit someone and then immediately pull over and pass out….

  32. coachbeck says: Apr 29, 2014 7:58 AM

    Well no chance Cincy takes him now. Unless this is not accurate

  33. beelicker says: Apr 29, 2014 9:32 AM

    Either somebody slipped him a mickey or else he roofied himself? Better call Inspector Clouseau …

  34. noffy32 says: Apr 29, 2014 9:33 AM

    The 911 caller must work for TMZ. They can’t get anything right.
