Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett was arrested just north of the campus early Saturday morning and cited on a misdemeanor charge of operating a motor vehicle while impaired. According to Eleven Warriors, Barrett was pulled over after trying to avoid an OVI checkpoint. 

A breathalyzer test revealed Barrett had a BAC just above the 0.08 legal limit in Ohio for drivers 21 years of age or older. However, at 20, the legal limit stands at 0.02.

When J.T. was released, it was teammate and backup quarterback Cardale Jones who picked him up and took him home. 

The Buckeyes are on a bye week. The program has already announced that Barrett will be suspended for their next game on Nov. 7 against Minnesota. However, he can return the following week for their matchup versus Illinois
