911 Caller Claims Former Ohio State Player Roby ‘Almost Hit Kids’ With Vehicle Before Passing Out

A newly released 911 call from April 20 opens up more questions about the charges against former OSU player Bradley Roby

Columbus police have released a 911 call dispatchers received the night former Ohio State football player Bradley Roby was allegedly passed out behind the wheel of his vehicle.

Roby was arrested April 20 on Vine Street in downtown Columbus.

Court documents show officers found Roby passed out behind the wheel of his car. The 911 caller indicates that he may have been driving the SUV.

“Hi, I'm just leaving BBR on Vine and some black Dodge Charger just almost hit a bunch of kids on the sidewalk.  And now, the driver is passed out drunk on the side of BBR in black Charger with Georgia plates,” the caller states.

Police say Roby failed a field sobriety test.

His agent argues that Roby was just sitting in the car and not driving, and that his blood alcohol level was only .008 which is below the legal limit.               

Roby has a court date scheduled for Tuesday.

Roby was a star defensive back, left Ohio State at the end of his junior season to enter the NFL draft which occurs in early May. Roby was suspended at the beginning of his junior year after being involved in a bar fight. Charges in that case were dismissed.
