Ohio State RB acquitted of disorderly conduct charge

Already acquitted of drug-related charges from a traffic stop last month, Ohio State running back Bri’onte Dunn has now had the disorderly charge against him dropped as well.

Cantonrep.com reports that Dunn appeared in court on Friday and was acquitted of the misdemeanor after the magistrate found there was insufficient evidence against the running back. That left only the traffic violations — license plate illumination and not wearing a seatbelt — of which Dunn was found guilty. He’ll pay a whopping $60 in fines plus court fees.

Dunn was pulled over by police in July when he nearly ran a blinking red light, nearly striking a patrol car. When stopped, police found a marijuana pipe and less than 200 grams of pot. Dunn’s mother later claimed the drugs present in her car were there before Dunn borrowed the vehicle.

He originally faced four misdemeanor charges.

    Way to teach your son how to be a man, Ms. Dunn! Women in the hood have been taking the charges for their men for years now the moms are doing it to. SMH!

    “Enablers” do not help delinquents become law abiding citizens. Girlfriends, wives, mothers, or anyone who take the blame and penalty for their boyfriends, lovers, husbands, sons, etc. are “enablers” among other things. These males will usually continue their aberrant behavior until they actually will pay time for it in the pokey. This may appear to be victory to some fans, but it is not.

    Did you expect anything else.Check UMs record with criminals at FSU.They were guilty of crap that you and I would have went to jail for.He let them play anyway.OSU still runs a criminal frendly program.There are about 10 or so coaches that are giving college football a black eye.To bad they are allowed to coach.Winning comes before anything else.Just look at PSU.

    In Ohio you CAN outrun the law as long as you wear the stupid glittery silver helmet of OSU.

    Do any of you freedom-hating Communists care that his drug test came back clean?

    @BrownsTown

    No, they do not. And why would they? It doesnt fit the ‘Don Urban-dirty program-so glad he is not our coach anymore-tats give you a competative advantage-bunch of raffle fixers-tOSU sucks narrative’.

    Did CFT report that he passed his drug test? I dont remember seeing it, but I could have missed it. If they didn’t run it I am not surprised–sports reporting these days feels more and more like what u get at TMZ.

    What weighs more? 200 grams of weed or 200 grams of your mom’s weed?

    Excellent!!! Now the kid can focus on getting back to a normal life.

    What was the disorderly conduct for? And why was that dropped? Does anyone really believe that any other (normal) person could get away with that ridiculous, “Oh, that ain’t mine, officer, it’s my mommas” horseshit excuse? Last time I looked the driver is the responsible party for anything found in the car he has control over. This story makes that Ohio PD look pretty damn lame.

    High quality young men u got there

    @Browns Town, not impressed!!! You can go to the local Water Beds and Stuff and buy items to clear up weed use. So I am not excited that he had a clean piss test. People have been beating piss tests for steroids for years so you don’t think beating one for weed is out of the question?

    ohioirishfan,

    You obviously know nothing about modern day drug screening. They also test for what are known as “masking agents”, i.e. UrineLuck, etc. I guess since you shop at Waterbeds and Stuff, you’re probably short a few brain cells. I know this having to submit to mandatory random drug screenings while working for a DOT sanctioned transportation company. Perhaps you should think or egads, do some research before you post.
    Finally, the Irish haven’t been relevant for almost 20 years, remember the beatdown ND took at the hands of TOSU in the mid 90′s and the hammering AJ Hawk gave both Brady Quinn and his sister? Just sayin’

    @call – I was at that beatdown in the desert!!! Glorious watching A.J. Hawk destroy the domers! Still makes me laugh how arrogant and belligerent their fans were all day prior to the game – not so much afterwards!!
