Former Ohio State running back Bri’onte Dunn has been charged with domestic violence and assault stemming from an incident involving his girlfriend last month. He has a warrant out for his arrest.

The altercation took place on July 17 and he was promptly dismissed by coach Urban Meyer the next day.

Two days after his dismissal, July 20, the 911 call from Dunn’s girlfriend surfaced where she described being hit early in the morning on the 17th. She also said in the 911 call that this wasn’t the first altercation between the two.

The charges of domestic violence and assault are first-degree misdemeanors. The maximum penalty for each charge is six months in jail or $1,000 fine.

This incident took place in Columbus, but Dunn’s address in the case summary is listed in Alliance, Ohio.

Meyer said last week at Big Ten Media Days that there was “no chance” Dunn would be allowed to rejoin the team.
