Former Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby, a potential first-round draft pick, may have just done something to significantly downgrade his draft stock.

According to 10 News in Ohio, Roby is facing a a charge of OVI, or operating a vehicle under the influence.

The incident took place on April 20, when officers were called to the scene of a person passed out behind the wheel of a car. The officers who responded to the call reported that they couldn’t get the driver’s attention, and that when they opened the door they noticed the odor of alcohol. The driver failed a field sobriety test.

Roby’s agent Michael Perrett gave a different account of the incident to Ohio State sports website ElevenWarriors.com.

“This past weekend my client Bradley Roby was issued a citation in Columbus, Ohio for operating a vehicle while impaired (OVI),” Perrett said in a statement. “Bradley was sitting in his parked car in a parking lot when he was approached and questioned by an officer. He was fully cooperative and willingly submitted to field sobriety and breathalyzer tests. His BAC test registered a negligible .008 and after further testing at the police station, he was very quickly released on his own recognizance. There are no other charges, and we are confident that this matter will be resolved quickly and favorably for Bradley. However, as the matter is still pending, we cannot comment further at this time.”

This isn’t Roby’s first off-field incident. He was also suspended for the first game of last season after he was accused of getting in a bar fight, although criminal charges in that case were eventually dropped.

Roby is one of the 30 players who will attend the NFL draft. This incident means he’s likely going to have to wait a little longer to hear his name called on draft day.

I hope he didn't get the super saver and can get his money back.  Most of these guys are not rocket scientists, but talk about screwing yourself.  Dumb as a fricking stick.

Sounds like he thought he could just sleep it off in the driver's seat outside the bar. We've all been there. Horrible timing, unfortunately.

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

That's exactly what it sounds like, I wonder if the car was on and that's why he was charged? 0.008 is nothing, 0.08 is the legal limit.

You'd think that if you're less than a month away from a life changing event in your life you would go out of your way to not go out. Hope that night was worth a few mill, because thats what he just lost. Stupidity like this would have me completely take off my board. If he's dumb enough to make a mistake like this, he will likely do worse in new york. See ya bye

True, but 4/20 this year also fell on Easter.  Perhaps he just had too much to eat at a family function.

Call a cab. Call a friend for a ride (people have $20 million reasons to be friends with this dude, BTW). Or just don't put yourself in a crappy position like that at all, especially (but not only) when you're about to get drafted.

truth is, no test is given for a minimum of 20 minutes to allow for the "mouth alcohol" to dissipate.  this is following the arrest and booking procedure after being stopped, questioned, tested in the field and transported to headquarters for booking.  so most BAC levels are lower than the levels the driver had prior to being stopped.  Beyond that, sleeping in a car would not be an offense.  Sleeping in a running car with the keys in the ignition, would show intent to operate, however.  this is how a DUI would hold up if a driver passed out at a stoplight.  There are parameters.  Roby getting popped twice in a relatively short period of time would indicate he may have a substance abuse issue.  Or he just might be incredibly unlucky.  With millions of dollars on the line, an employer might just take a pass and draft a less risky prospect.  Like one who hasn't been arrested for intoxication on multiple occasions.

If you're impaired, in the car, and have the keys in your vicinity you can get a DUI.

The car does not have to be running for a person to be charged.  According to the St. Lawrence County DA if a person has possession of the keys to the vehicle that is sufficient enough.  I was taken into custody up in Potsdam sleeping it off in the backseat of my girlfriends car and was arrested.  Fortunately the DA was willing to plea it down to a drunk in public charge and a $65 fine.  His claim was that it was perfectly clear I had no intent of operating the vehicle.  I kind of got lucky because the car was running.  Well, it was -35F outside!  I think he took that into account as well.

It's his second arrest in the last 2 years

 

I changed the title to OVI just to match what the article says.

If you are intoxicated, or feel woozy, do not...i repeat, DO NOT get in the driver's seat of a car. Even if you are parked and have not moved the vehicle, the fact that you have the keys and you could drive can cause you to be issued a summons. Its best to avoid any appearance of intent to drive while intoxicated.  

 

1) Call a Cab or

2) Call a friend to take you home or

3) Rent a local hotel room and sleep it off.

 

If you are booked for OVI/DUI/DWI, that could stay on your record and come up at a bad time (EMPLOYMENT BACKGROUND SEARCH).

 

Be smart, don't approach your car's driver seat, let someone else drive you home.

From what I understand if the keys are within reach( basically anywhere inside the cabin of the car) you can be charged. I've heard if you decide to sleep it off in your car you have to put the keys in the trunk or unhook the neg batter terminal rendering the car "inoperable". Dude should've just called a friend or cab though.

Thanks for explaining it.

 

It defies logic. My car. If I am in the passengers seat taking a nap where does driving part come in.

 

I have done that.
