According to Bill Rabinowitz of the Columbus Dispatch, the misdemeanor charge against Ohio State junior cornerback Bradley Roby was changed from a Class A misdemeanor of battery, to a Class B misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.
Roby was arrested early Sunday morning of July 21 on charges of battery resulting in bodily injury at a bar in Bloomington, Indiana.
Sources told The Dispatch that Roby was asked to leave a bar after a disturbance. Roby did, only to return to try to find his friends. When he wasn’t allowed back inside the bar, he struck a bouncer and was subdued by the bar’s security before being taken into police custody.
According to reports, Monroe County deputy prosecutor Christopher Pierce filed a motion to amend the charges Friday morning in Bloomington. Roby has a pretrial hearing set for Aug. 26.
Though head coach Urban Meyer hasn’t suspended Roby, he has been spending his practice time working out with the second-team defense. I don’t foresee a suspension, either, and Roby will likely start the Aug. 31st season-opener versus Buffalo.
