Ohio State Football: Police Called To J.T. Barrett's Apartment For Domestic Incident

The Ohio State quarterback and a former girlfriend both requested police during an incident around midnight.

Columbus Police were called to the apartment of Ohio State football quarterback J.T. Barrett late Tuesday night.

According to a police report and 911 calls, 19-year-old J.T. Barrett said that his ex-girlfriend refused to leave the residence.

Alexandria Barrett-Clark, 19, told officers that J.T. Barrett allegedly "choked her on the bed," and she said he used his forearm to apply pressure to her neck before taking her phone away from her.

J.T. Barrett claimed that when Barrett-Clark wouldn't leave, he pushed her away in self-defense, which caused her to fall on the bed.

Police at the scene said neither person showed any signs of injury. Both declined medical treatment.

A witness in the apartment heard the arguing but did not see any fighting between the couple. Barrett-Clark did tell 911 operators that there was broken glass in the room.

No charges were filed by police, and the couple declined to press charges against each other. They do have the option of doing so at a later date through the city prosecutor.

“We are aware of the report, we understand there were no charges filed, and we are looking into it,” read a statement released by Ohio State football information director Jerry Emig. Coach Urban Meyer and his staff are on the road recruiting.
