Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett Suspended After Arrest On Drunk Driving Charge

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett will miss next week’s game against Minnesota after being arrested last night in Columbus on charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, according to Eleven Warriors.

ESPN has the details:

Barrett, 20, was arrested after trying to avoid a DUI checkpoint near the Ohio State campus, a source told ESPN. He failed a breathalyzer test and was released to teammate and fellow quarterback Cardale Jones, according to the source.

Barrett’s suspension conveniently coincides with the Buckeyes being off this week; he was previously investigated after his girlfriend told police he choked her.
