Report: Former Ohio State Cornerback Bradley Roby Arrested For OVI After Allegedly Passing Out Behind The Wheel

There is never a good time to get in trouble with the law, but there are certainly bad times, and getting arrested weeks before the most important day of your professional career has to rank highly on that list. Former Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby was reportedly arrested for an OVI April 20, roughly three weeks before the NFL Draft, according to 10TV.

The NFL hopeful, according to the report, was found passed out behind the wheel of his car on Vine Street in Columbus Easter Sunday. A report was filed April 22. The report states:

"When officers arrived, they were unable to get the driver’s attention. They opened the unlocked door and say they noticed the odor of alcohol."

"Police say another officer was called to conduct a field sobriety test, which the driver failed."

Roby, a potential first round pick in the May 8 draft, left Ohio State following this season--his redshirt junior year--to pursue a professional career. He had what he has called a disappointing season and missed the Buckeyes Orange Bowl bout with Clemson with a leg injury. NFL scouts like his size, speed, and athleticism. 

They probably won't like this incident, though. It's the second time in less than a year that Roby has been in trouble with the law. He was suspended by Urban Meyer at the beginning of the 2013 season after being in a bar fight in Bloomington, Ind. Charges in that case were dismissed.
