2014 NFL Draft: Bradley Roby arrested for drunk driving

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

Charges are expected to be dropped, according to an Ohio State fan web site, to which Roby's agent, Michael Perrett, released a statement.

Cornerback prospect Bradley Roby is scheduled to appear in court Friday stemming from charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OVI) April 20 in Columbus.

It's a hit against the highly regarded cornerback, who entered the 2013 season as the top cornerback prospect in the nation. A rough 2013 season hindered that ranking, and he is expected to be the fourth cornerback taken in May's NFL Draft.

The Steelers visited with Roby, and some have suggested he's who the Steelers planned to take with the 15th overall pick. Roby's agent, Michael Perrett, released a statement to an Ohio State web site, Eleven Warriors, Thursday.

"This past weekend my client Bradley Roby was issued a citation in Columbus, Ohio for operating a vehicle while impaired (OVI)," Perrett is quoted as saying in the statement. "Bradley was sitting in his parked car in a parking lot when he was approached and questioned by an officer. He was fully cooperative and willingly submitted to field sobriety and breathalyzer tests. His BAC test registered a negligible .008 and after further testing at the police station, he was very quickly released on his own recognizance. There are no other charges, and we are confident that this matter will be resolved quickly and favorably for Bradley. However, as the matter is still pending, we cannot comment further at this time."
