Bradley Roby gives his side of story in OVI incident


Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby gave his side of the story Friday regarding his April 20 citation on a charge of operating a vehicle under the influence in Columbus, Ohio.

A possible first-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Roby posted a picture of a document that purportedly shows he registered just a .008 blood-alcohol reading in the alleged incident.

Roby’s agent, Michael Perrett, told that Roby’s blood-alcohol level was only .008, a reading below the legal limit.

Via the Cleveland Plain Dealer, online Franklin (Ohio) County Municipal Court records show that Roby will be arraigned in the OVI case on Tuesday, April 29.

In other tweets Friday, Roby noted that he “was not driving” and “did not get arrested” in the alleged incident. Roby also said that while he took “ownership” for what had happened, he was not happy with how it was portrayed by the media.

  1. We have a 1st round draft pick sleeping in his car outside a bar, Andy!

    Bring him in, Barney! Free publicity!!!

    A picture is worth a 1000 words!

  2. Was there a blood test for drugs?

    I hate that they can charge you for being under the influence, but not driving. You simply need to have keys in your possession or “nearby.” You are convicted on your “potential” to drive. Can you imagine being convicted on your potential to steal, rob, kill, drive too fast, drive too slow, park incorrectly etc?

  3. This whole scenario sounds eerily similar thematically to what happened to Tharald Simon, in his Louisiana hometown, prior to last years’ draft. I hope that the league’s GM’s and HC’s get the full story on this BEFORE they make their decisions regarding this young man’s future with the NFL.

    I wasn’t drunk, I just fell asleep behind the wheel.

    C’mon man, have a little bit of intellectual curiosity and read the report.

    He wasn’t driving and was a passenger. So, he wasn’t drunk, wasn’t driving and wasn’t arrested.

    Is your life so small that you hope for others to fail?

  5. Given that the prosecution has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he was under the influence and the breathalizer report shows Roby at less than .01, the case will be dismissed. Since it’s in Columbus and he has a lot riding on it, I’ll bet it’s dismissed before the draft starts.
