Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback J.T. Barrett got into some trouble early this morning. He was arrested for operating a motor vehicle while being impaired.

This news comes one week after he became the Buckeyes starting quarterback after replacing Cardale Jones. It’s unclear how this news will affect the quarterback situation moving forward.

Barrett was reportedly busted at a checkpoint near the Ohio State campus. The reports say that he was trying to avoid the checkpoint; however, he is under the legal age to drink at 20.

According to reports, Barrett blew slightly over 0.08 on his breathalyzer test. Jones was reportedly the teammate, who he was released to.

Jones started the first seven games of the season, but Barrett took over last week against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. Ohio State, the No. 1 ranked team, is on a bye this week, but they haven’t released an officially statement on the situation.

Before this news, head coach Urban Meyer officially named Barrett as the team’s starting QB against the Minnesota Golden Gophers next week. He’s also a team captain, even as a redshirt sophomore.
