Ohio State's Bradley Roby has battery charge reduced
The misdemeanor battery charge against Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby has been reduced to a disorderly conduct charge.
According to the Columbus Dispatch, instead of being charged with battery Roby is now facing a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. The charge stems from an incident outside a bar in Bloomington, Indiana on July 21.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said he would wait until all the facts of the case were decided before disciplining Roby, but although he hasn't missed any practice time, the All-American corner has been working with the second unit during training camp.
Also, just because the charge has been reduced, that doesn't mean Roby will escape a suspension. Meyer said a suspension was likely for Roby during Big Ten media days, and running back Carlos Hyde was suspended a minimum of three games in July even after it was announced he wouldn't face any criminal charges stemming from his own night club incident.
Roby has started all 25 games for the Buckeyes in the last two seasons, finishing 2012 with 62 tackles, two interceptions, a sack and 17 passes broken up.
