Ohio State Running Back Bri'onte Dunn Cited (Not Arrested) For Paraphernalia Possession

Ohio State RB Bri'onte Dunn can expect to see this face in his future.

Todd Porter of the Canton Repository, Bri'onte Dunn's hometown paper, is reporting that the freshman Ohio State running back expected to make an impact during the 2012 season (particularly during senior Jordan Hall's absence due to injury) was cited Saturday evening though not arrested for paraphernalia possession:

Ohio State running back and former GlenOak All-Ohioan Bri'onte Dunn was cited by the Alliance Police Department over the weekend for drug paraphernalia possession and a seat belt violation, two sources with knowledge of the incident told The Repository.

Per The Repository, the initial rumors that Dunn was arrested were inaccurate. That would explain why there were no arrest records for Dunn on the Stark County database.

Paraphernalia possesion is punishable in a misdemeanor in the state of Ohio and is punishable by up to 30 days in jail and/or a $750 fine. Assuming Dunn is convincted, he also loses his driver's license for 6 months to 5 years.

While it's unlikely as a first time offender Dunn will actually serve any time (a fine, community service, and probation is customary), it's likely that Ohio State strength coach Mickey Marotti will have his way with Dunn for much of the rest of summer. Dunn could also potentially miss the Miami University game as a punishment.
