COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) --Former Ohio State cornerback and NFL prospect Bradley Roby no longer faces a charge of operating a vehicle under the influence (OVI) but will have to complete a driver intervention program by May 5th after pleading guilty Tuesday to a charge of physical control.

Under Ohio law, the physical control charge is similar to operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol, but it does not require that the vehicle ever have been driven or started.

Roby was cited after he was found passed out in his car in the Arena District last week, and, while he failed a sobriety test, he denies he was ever arrested.

According to a police report, Roby's blood-alcohol level was .008, well below the state limit of .08.

In addition to the driver intervention program, Roby was fined $375 plus court costs.
