COLUMBUS — The misdemeanor charge against Ohio State star cornerback Bradley Roby was reduced today from battery to disorderly conduct, according to Indiana court records.

Roby was initially charged last month with a Class A misdemeanor after allegedly striking a security guard in the chest outside a bar in Bloomington, Ind. He now faces a Class B charge.

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has said he plans to let the case unfold before issuing his punishment, though he said a suspension was likely. Roby, a junior All-American, has been practicing with the Buckeyes' second team during the first two weeks of preseason camp.

Roby is scheduled for a pre-trial conference Aug. 26 at Monroe County Court.
