Former 4 star Ohio State RB arrested for felony drug charge after a woman overdosed

Former Ohio State RB Bri’onte Dunn was arrested after a female overdosed at her home.

Bri’onte Dunn was supposed to be Ezekiel Elliott’s replacement a few years ago but was dismissed from the team.

Dunn was a four star running back that landed at Ohio State and now he is likely headed to jail.

Bri’onte Dunn, 26, was arrested Friday morning after he was found to be in possession of cocaine, and is being charged with possession of drugs. 

When police arrived at the house, a woman was in need of medical attention. NARCAN was administered and she regained consciousness and was taken to the hospital for treatment.

At that time police began a search of the home after obtaining a search warrant and found a large bag of cocaine in a jacket that belonged to Dunn.

Dunn played in 11 games for Ohio State in 2012. After redshirting the following year, he played in six games in 2014 and nine games in 2015.
