Ohio State's Bri'onte Dunn Acquitted Of All Charges

Ohio State running back Bri'onte Dunn was cleared of all charges last Friday stemming from his July 28 citation for alleged disorderly conduct as well as possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Dunn had his day in court in Alliance, Ohio, and magistrate Jean Madden ruled that there was not enough evidence to support those charges.

Madden did find Dunn guilty of two minor traffic violations: insufficient license plate illumination and failure to wear a seatbelt. That resulted in a fine for Dunn that amounts to $60 plus court costs. Dunn took the stand on Friday, refuting the testimony of his passenger, McKensey Cross, who said that the two had been smoking marijuana in his car. Dunn's mother, Donna Hatcher, testified that the marijuana was in her car before she loaned it to Dunn, though she was unaware of how it got there.

Dunn, a true freshman, was one of the top ranked players in Ohio in the 2012 recruiting class.
