The biggest news of the college football weekend came from a team that didn’t even see the field on Saturday. Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett was arrested on a charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and backing without safety.
Barrett has since been suspended for Saturday’s game against Minnesota and has had some financial aid funds revoked. According to College Football Talk, Barrett will be in court Friday morning for his arraignment hearing.
Both of his charges have been labeled as misdemeanors, but they are still to be discussed in court.
Eleven Warriors had more on the report.
“The report also shows a charge of ‘backing without safety’ against Barrett, who was driving a vehicle with a Texas license plate. Barrett is from Wichita Falls, Texas. According to Ohio code, ‘backing without safety’ refers to a subject violating section 2921.331 of the Revised Code or any ordinance ‘prohibiting the willful fleeing or eluding of a law enforcement officer.'”
This is surely going to be an interesting weekend for the Buckeyes and their quarterback.
