UPDATE 7:58pm: An Alliance Police Department report shows Dunn was arrested on June 2 for "Failure to Control." He appeared in court June 6, plead guilty and paid $35 and court costs, a total of $110.

There is no listing of Bri'onte Dunn being arrested July 28 or July 29 on the Alliance Police Department's online listing of arrests.

ESPN 850 WKNR in Cleveland is reporting that Ohio State freshman running back Bri'onte Dunn was arrested over the weekend in Alliance, Ohio. Ohio State has not commented on or confirmed Dunn's arrest.

With Jordan Hall's foot injury keeping him out for anywhere between one to four games, Dunn was a candidate to take some of the load at running back with Carlos Hyde. Dunn enrolled early at Ohio State and impressed many with his power running during spring practice.

Next in line is the enigmatic Rod Smith, who had trouble with fumbles last season and was even switched to linebacker part of the year. He returned to the backfield in the spring. 

We'll have more information as this story develops.
