Former Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby plead guilty Tuesday to a reduced charge of physical control of a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, according to Franklin County Court records. Roby was sentenced to 180 days in jail, but the punishment was suspended on the condition that the All-American defensive back complete a three-day driver-intervention course. He was also fined $375.
Roby was originally charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated after police found him passed out in his car early on April 20 in Columbus. Roby, 21, took a Breathalyzer test that revealed a blood alcohol content of .008, or 10 times below Ohio’s limit. He was arrested after failing a field sobriety test.
A potential first-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, this incident will likely not help Roby’s draft stock. He, apparently, understands this.
Bradley Roby told officer, “You are going to cost me my millions of dollars,” according to police report. Otherwise cooperative.

Roby, a 5-foot-11, 192-pound cornerback, had a somewhat disappointing junior season for Ohio State. He missed the Orange Bowl with a leg injury and had a poor game against Wisconsin, going up against potential NFL wide receiver Jarred Abbrederis.
