The legal problem Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby was facing is no longer a problem — so long as he completes a diversion program, that is.
Roby’s misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge has been conditionally dismissed. The terms of the agreement, first offered by prosecutors last week, say Roby must avoid legal trouble until Aug. 16, 2014. A pretrial hearing for the case has been cancelled.
Roby was arrested by Bloomington (Ind.) police on an assault charge last month after he allegedly became involved in a scuffle with the bouncers at a night club, though video evidence of the incident appeared to clear the junior of any kind of battery. The charge was later reduced to disorderly conduct.
Roby is still facing punishment from Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer and will miss the season opener against Buffalo.
