COLUMBUS, Ohio - First-team cornerback Bradley Roby, of Ohio State, is being investigated over an assault in Indiana.
Court records in Monroe County, Ind., indicate Roby was arrested early Sunday morning in Bloomington, Ind., and is facing preliminary charges of misdemeanor battery resulting in bodily injury. He posted bond.
Officials said Roby was arrested at Dunkirk Bar at 430 E. Kirkwood Ave., around 3 a.m. Sunday.
Witnesses and bar staff told police Roby had tried to start a fight with another bar patron then attempted to re-enter the bar after having been kicked out, police said.
When bar security tried to stop Roby from coming back into the bar, he reportedly hit one of them in the chest, police said.
Roby, a 5-11, 192-pound redshirt junior from Suwanee, Ga., was Ohio State's third-leading tackler last year. He had two interceptions, one for a touchdown, to go with two tackles for minus yardage, one sack, one fumble recovery and one blocked kick.
He had considered jumping into the NFL draft after Ohio State's 12-0 season but decided to return to the team.
