20-year-old Ohio State starting quarterback J.T. Barrett was arrested early on the morning of Oct. 31 for operating a motor vehicle while impaired, according to Buckeyes site Eleven Warriors, which cites two sources within the Columbus Police Department.
ESPN’s Brett McMurphy confirmed the arrest and charge. Neither CPD nor Ohio State has made any information public at this time, and calls to CPD and the Franklin County jail didn’t produce any records.
More from 11W:
Barrett was arrested near High and Tompkins, just north of Campus after policed noticed the player attempt to avoid an OVI checkpoint in the area. Per CPD sources, Barrett was cooperative and blew into a breathalyzer, registering slightly over Ohio’s legal limit of 0.08 blood-alcohol concentration.
11W also reports it was backup quarterback Cardale Jones who provided Barrett a ride home after his release.
No. 1 Ohio State is on a bye week, with a home game against Minnesota up next. Barrett recently reclaimed the starting job from Jones, which appeared at the time to be an end to nearly a solid year of OSU quarterback drama.
