Bri’onte Dunn Charged With Four Misdemeanors, Including Pot Possession

Though the stories that Ohio State running back Bri'onte Dunn had been arrested on Sunday were exaggerated, he still won't be getting off scot free after being pulled over and cited by police.

According to reports he was pulled over on Sunday after running a light and almost striking a pedestrian, and after being pulled over was discovered to have less than 200 grams of marijuana as well as a wooden pipe. Dunn has officially been charged with four different misdemeanors, as reported by the Canton Rep.

The four charges are possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, not wearing a seat belt and a tail-light violation.

Though the school has not commented on the situation as of yet, the incident could prove to be problematic for Dunn's future as an Ohio State Buckeye, as Urban Meyer has had a history of not tolerating troubled players:

Meyer has had a low tolerance for players who get into trouble off the field. OSU's new coach suspended offensive lineman Jack Mewhort and tight end Jake Stoneburner indefinitely after they were charged with obstructing official business. Linebacker Storm Klein was dismissed from the team after he was arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence and assault.
