Disorderly conduct charge against Ohio State CB conditionally dismissed

Bradley Roby AP

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.

    Columbus Chief of Police Urban Meyer had no comment.

    iammrbinky – right, except he was arrested in Indiana, which isn’t Columbus.

    @jrs – the power of stupidity – congrats, you win the prize for the 1st and most idiotic statement of the day!

    Please continue to ignore the fact that this happened in Indiana – the home of not one, but two of OSU’s opponents in the B1G! Please continue to ignore that the video shows the bouncer pushing Roby 3 times before Roby responded with a push back – not a battery related type action. Please continue to ignore the fact that it is the police and the prosecutors office that decides how the case will be adjudicated – after reviewing the video and talking to witnesses – they went for a DC charge instead. Please also continue to ignore the Diversion programs are nationwide and offered to people that have never been in trouble before!

    However, in lieu of all of the facts – I’m sure you have great contacts and information that clearly show Urban contacting all parties concerned in Indiana and using his awesome Urban’s Jedi superpowers – get’s them to drop the charges while repeating – ‘these are not the droids you are looking for’.

    @iammrbinky – idiot. read the story first.

    Cue the tOSU trolls blaming Urban for the assault, accusing him of buying off the local cops, and otherwise corrupting the world for the benefit of his football team.

    Tired story. Thank the heavens above that we are only a few days away from watching actual football.
