Dunn cleared of charge

A magistrate in northeast Ohio has found Ohio State running back Bri'onte Dunn not guilty of a disorderly conduct charge.

The Canton Repository reports Municipal Court Magistrate Jean Madden acquitted the 19-year-old Dunn after a bench trial Friday. Dunn and three other witnesses testified. The minor misdemeanor charge stems from a traffic stop in late July, when police found marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the car Dunn was driving. A police report says he nearly hit a patrol car. Dunn pleaded innocent in early August. Dunn is an incoming freshman who was a star back at Canton's GlenOak High School.
