The charge against Ohio State redshirt junior cornerback Bradley Roby has been downgraded to disorderly conduct from battery, according to the Monroe County Prosecutor’s Office.
Roby was involved in an altercation at a bar in Bloomington, Ind. on July 21 where he was initially charged with misdemeanor battery. The date of the pretrial hearing remains Aug. 26, according to the Prosecutor’s Office.
OSU coach Urban Meyer has not suspended Roby for the incident, but he has been practicing with the team during fall camp in preparation for the season.
The maximum punishment for a disorderly conduct charge is 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine in Indiana.
It remains to be seen if Roby will take part in the teams Aug. 31 season opener at home against Buffalo.
OSU and Roby did not respond to The Lantern’s request for comment.
