Ohio State Buckeye freshman running back Bri'onte Dunn will not face marijuana charges after his mother claims that the pot was hers.
Dunn was pulled over during a routine traffic stop when police found a small amount of marijuana and a pipe in his car. The car that Dunn was driving is registered to his mother, Donna.
She arrived at the scene and claimed that the marijuana and pipe was indeed hers and not her son's.
“Based upon the content of all the evidence reviewed, I made the decision to authorize the minor misdemeanor disorderly conduct instead of the drug possession because throughout the entire (traffic) stop Bri’onte Dunn is consistent and denies the paraphernalia and the small amount marijuana are his,” Alliance City Law Dirctor Andrew Zumbar said. “The paraphernalia was not found on him.”
Bri'onte Dunn will however be charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct, seat belt violations, and tail light violations.
