Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett initially told a Columbus police officer he hadn't been drinking the night he was arrested for drunken driving and asked for a way out because he was the Buckeyes quarterback, according to dashboard camera video of the arrest released Thursday.
"I'm the quarterback at Ohio State," Barrett said after he was arrested Oct. 31 following a series of tests for impaired driving. The officer is heard telling Barrett he'd been polite and cooperative.
"There's nothing you can do?" Barrett asked.
Barrett, 20, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a count of drunken driving and was sentenced to a three-day driver-intervention program to be completed by Feb. 15. He also was fined $400 and had his license suspended for six months.
Barrett apologized in the courtroom to his family and Ohio State fans: "I'm just truly sorry."
Texas A&M suing over 12th Man
Texas A&M filed a lawsuit against the NFL's Indianapolis Colts for what it believes to be an infringement of the school's "12th Man" trademark.
In a statement, A&M President Michael K. Young said: "Texas A&M University is the Home of the 12th Man, which has brought our fan base national renown. We would prefer not to file lawsuits to protect our trademarks. However, when our intellectual property, especially the 12th Man mark which is so important to our students and former students, is used without our permission after repeated attempts to engage on the matter, we are left with no choice."
