Ohio State QB Barrett pleads guilty in connection with drunk driving citation

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH)–Ohio State University Quarterback J.T. Barrett pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges that he operated a vehicle while impaired.

Barrett apologized to his family, his football family and Buckeye Nation. Among his last words before the judge today, “I’m truly sorry.”

The judge ruled Barrett must complete a three day program before February 14, pay a $400 fine and his license will be suspended for 180 days.

The 20-year-old Barrett was cited for the misdemeanor at a Columbus police checkpoint Oct. 31, during the Buckeyes’ off week. Police say a breath test showed his blood-alcohol content was above the legal limit.
