CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Bradley Roby stops denying arrest and pleads guilty to "physical control" of a vehicle while impaired. The former Ohio State cornerback and potential first-round draft pick came out strong on Twitter last week after it was reported that he had been charged with OVI. Turns out he pleaded guilty on Tuesday anyway.

In a series of tweets, Roby said he hadn't been arrested, hadn't been finger-printed and hadn't been put in a holding cell. He also wrote "I have lost any respect I had left for the media. I take ownership in my part of it. But you run a story at least put out all facts ..."

According to the Franklin County court website, Roby pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of having "physical control" of a vehicle while impaired. He was fined $375 plus court costs and given 180 days in jail, but as the Columbus Dispatch writes, Roby can avoid any jail time by undergoing three days of a driver intervention program.

Roby was also given 30 days of probation.
