Roby’s charge was lessened from Class A misdemeanor battery to Class B misdemeanor disorderly conduct.A pretrial conference is scheduled for Aug. 26. The charge stems from a July 21 altercation outside a bar in Bloomington Indiana. It’s alleged that Roby struck a security officer in the chest outside a bar, causing a “complaint of pain.”
The motion to amend was filed by Monroe County deputy prosecutor Christopher Pierce this morning. Disorderly conduct is a class B misdemeanor, meaning punishment could include up to 180 days in prison and a fine of up to $1,000. Class A misdemeanors can be punishable by up to a year in prison and a $5,000 fine.
We’ve yet to hear what his suspension will be while facts are gathered. Roby has been working with the second team in practice but is expected to have a big year for the Buckeyes.
