Ohio State RB acquitted of disorderly conduct charge

Already acquitted of drug-related charges from a traffic stop last month, Ohio State running back Bri’onte Dunn has now had the disorderly charge against him dropped as well. 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.

Dunn was pulled over by police in July when he nearly ran a blinking red light, nearly striking a patrol car. When stopped, police found a marijuana pipe and less than 200 grams of pot. Dunn’s mother later claimed the drugs present in her car were there before Dunn borrowed the vehicle.

He originally faced four misdemeanor charges.
