As reported by The Canton Repository, Alliance police stopped Dunn around 11 p.m. on Sunday when he nearly hit a patrol car with his vehicle after allegedly skidding through a blinking red light at Arch Avenue.
The 19-year old running back was not wearing his seatbelt, and Alliance police reportedly found a wooden pipe used for smoking marijuana, along with less than 200 grams of marijuana on the seat cushions and floor boards where Dunn was seated.
An 18-year-old woman from Plain Township was also in the vehicle, and she too was charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, along with a seatbelt violation. Neither passenger was arrested or booked, according to The Repository.
Ohio State University spokespeople have not confirmed the incident, but all of the charges involved are misdemeanors in the state of Ohio.
Dunn is a freshman running back at Ohio State, where he was expected to compete for playing time this fall due to the injury sustained by senior tailback Jordan Hall.
We will continue to monitor the situation as we await official confirmation from Ohio State. It’s important to remember all reports right now are unconfirmed.
