ALLIANCE, Ohio - Alliance police confirmed Ohio State freshman running back Bri'onte Dunn, from North Canton, had a run-in with the law over the weekend – but there’s a twist in the case after drugs were found in the car he was driving.
The police department on Tuesday said charges will be filed against Dunn Wednesday for disorderly conduct, a seatbelt violation and for improperly illuminating a license plate.
In the car, which was registered to his mother, police found marijuana and a marijuana pipe.
Law Director Andrew Zumbar said Dunn’s mother arrived at the scene and told officers the marijuana belonged to her, and that the drugs were inside the car before she loaned it to her son.
According to city officials, investigators reviewed the police and witness reports and came to the conclusion to not charge Bri'onte Dunn
Police have not yet said if they’re going to charge Dunn’s mother.
The Canton Repository reported Sunday that Dunn was not arrested or booked into the jail since the charges are misdemeanors.
