Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett and his ex-girlfriend were involved in a domestic dispute late Tuesday night at his off-campus apartment, according to a Columbus Police report.

Barrett, 19, called police at 11:30 p.m. last night, according to 911 calls obtained by the Columbus Dispatch. "This is J.T. Barrett and I just have my ex-girlfriend in my house and I would like her to leave," he told the dispatcher. 

His ex-girlfriend, Alexandria Barrett-Clark, 19, also called police to report a "domestic violence account." "My ex choked me and flung me across the room, and I’m pregnant," she said. 

No charges have been filed, police observed no visible injuries and both refused medical treatment at the scene, according to the police report.

First reported by local television station ABC6, Barrett told officers Barrett-Clark "ran at him and pushed him" after asking her to leave. He also said "she struck him and he pushed her away in self-defense causing her to fall onto the bed" and asker her to leave his apartment "several times and she refused."

Barrett-Clark confirmed Barrett asked her to leave his apartment but "told him that she would leave in the morning." Barrett-Clark told officers he "confronted her in his bedroom and choked her on the bed before using his forearm to apply pressure on her neck before taking her cell phone from her."

Barrett's roommate, senior offensive lineman Darryl Baldwin, told officers he was "upstairs and heard arguing but did not see any type of altercation."

An Ohio State spokesman told Eleven Warriors the school is aware of the incident and is gathering more information.
