UPDATE: The Canton Rep is reporting that Brionte Dunn was cited, but not arrested, on Saturday for possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, not wearing a seat belt, and a tail light violation. As of Monday morning, Ohio State has still not released an official statement.
According to multiple sources, Ohio State incoming freshman running back Brionte Dunn was arrested over the weekend in Alliance Ohio.
Ohio State University has not released an official statement at this point, nor is there any official word as to what the arrest was for.
Dunn marks the 6th arrest for new Buckeye head coach Urban Meyer. While previous arrests were for players not recruited by Meyer, Dunn was one of the prize recruits in Urban Meyer’s first recruiting class at Ohio State. Dunn was expected to step in and see plenty of playing time right away as a freshman in Meyer’s new offense at Ohio State. If reports of this arrest are in fact true, that now seems highly unlikely. However, at this time these are just rumors and reports as no official statement has been released.
