Ohio State defensive back Roby arrested in Bloomington

Ohio State defensive back Bradley Roby was arrested in Bloomington on a misdemeanor battery charge early Sunday morning after an incident with a bouncer at a bar on Kirkwood Ave. The Columbus Dispatch reported Monday that OSU coach Urban Meyer is still looking into that incident, but that he dismissed running back Carlos Hyde from the team when he was named as a person of interest in an assault on a woman in Columbus.

UPDATE: The Bloomington Police department released a statement on Roby’s arrest. It follows.

On July 21, 2013 the Bloomington Police Department arrested Bradley James Roby (5/1/1992) for A-Misdemeanor Battery.
On July 21, 2013, at approximately 2:40 a.m., Bloomington Police were dispatched to the Dunkirk Bar, located at 430 E. Kirkwood Avenue, regarding a disturbance. When officers arrived they located Bradley James Roby being detained by private security officers hired by the bar. Bar staff, security officers, and an independent witness reported that Mr. Roby had been inside the Dunkirk Bar and had attempted to start a fight with another patron. He was removed from the bar by bar staff. He then attempted to re-enter the bar to locate his friends. At that point he was stopped by security officers and told he could not re-enter the bar. Mr. Roby then struck one of the security guards in the chest, causing a complaint of pain. He was then wrestled to the ground and detained until police arrived on the scene. Mr. Roby was arrested for A-Misdemeanor Battery and booked into the Monroe County Jail.

UPDATE: Ohio State announced that Roby will not attend Big Ten Media Days this week in Chicago and that he could be subject to additional discipline as more information about his case because available. It also said that Hyde has been suspended from all team activities but not dismissed from the team completely and could be reinstated pending the outcome of criminal and student code of conduct investigations.

O.K., I must have missed something. Is Roby from Bloomington? If not, what was he doing in town?

Looks like OSU is still recruiting those high character guys for their football team. And if my memory is in tact, didn’t OSU’s head coach have a lot of players with these type of problems when he was coach down at Florida? I know, it can happen to any team, but he seems to get more than his share of players with a tendency toward violence and trouble with the police.

I know young men do stupid things (I certainly did), but you have to be real stupid, real drunk, or both to punch a bouncer at a bar after you’ve already been thrown out of the bar by several bouncers. Roby is lucky he did not suffer season or career – ending injuries (such as broken bones) at the hands of the “private security guards.”

Not sure what he was doing in town, Podunker. But he is not from Bloomington.

Just caught a typo…I think you meant to say “becomes” available..And who is Hyde?

Thankfully the drunkard didn’t get in a car and kill somebody on the roadways.

If Meyer is expecting the SEC standard of behavior I would expect (hope) that it is only a matter of time before, a) he changes his standards or, b) he gets busted.

Time will tell.

Dustin-

Never mind. I saw the Carlos Hyde reference…Different incident of another OSU player already dismissed. I must have scanned that first paragraph too quickly.
