Former Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby, who was charged with operating a vehicle while impaired last week, has plead guilty to a lesser charge in court this morning. The draft prospect plead having “physical control” of a vehicle while under the influence, a non-moving charge that carries no license suspension or points on his license. Essentially, after he takes a required 3 day alcohol awareness course this week, the matter will be resolved.
In a statement to ProFootballTalk, Roby’s agent said, “Though my client, Bradley Roby, maintains his innocence and feels he would have been completely exonerated had he taken this matter to trial, Bradley has accepted the prosecutor’s offer of a reduced charge to ‘physical control’ to bring closure and finality to this situation ahead of next week’s NFL draft.”
Roby was reportedly very high on the Steelers radar before this point. How does this effect his stock in the eyes of the Steelers organization? Let us know in the comments or in the forum.
