According to NBC’s College Football Talk, Ohio State incoming freshman running back Bri’onte Dunn has been acquitted of a disorderly conduct charge.
Cantonrep.com reports that Dunn appeared in court on Friday and was acquitted of the misdemeanor after the magistrate found there was insufficient evidence against the running back. That left only the traffic violations — license plate illumination and not wearing a seatbelt — of which Dunn was found guilty. He’ll pay a whopping $60 in fines plus court fees.
This all stems from an incident in July, where he was charged with four misdemeanors. Dunn has plenty of competition to get into the Buckeye backfield this season, including junior Carlos Hyde, the currently injured senior Jordan Hall, sophomore Rod Smith, and fellow freshman Warren Ball.
