Police respond to disturbance call at Ohio State QB Barrett's home

BY foxsports • December 10, 2014

Injured Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett and his ex-girlfriend made 911 calls on Tuesday morning alleging each attacked the other.

A police report says Barrett and Alexandria Barrett-Clark were referred to prosecutors. Police say there were no obvious signs of injury and both declined to file charges.

The report quotes Barrett saying Barrett-Clark refused to leave his off-campus apartment in Columbus, Ohio, and struck him. It quotes Barrett-Clark saying he choked her and threw her across the room. On the 911 tape, she tells the dispatcher she's pregnant.

According to FOX 28 in Columbus, a witness told police that he heard an argument downstairs but did not see a fight between the two.

"(There is) no investigation. Both parties have the ability to file a charge against one another if they choose to at a later time through the prosecutor's office," Columbus Police spokesman Sgt. Rich Weiner said in a text message to The Associated Press. "Both parties stated they did not want to file charges at the scene."

Ohio State football team spokesman Jerry Emig said Wednesday he didn't anticipate coach Urban Meyer commenting on the situation.

FOX Sports 1 College Football Insider Bruce Feldman spoke to an Ohio State spokesperson about the police report and was told, "we are aware of the situation and are gathering information."

Barrett set Ohio State records for touchdown passes and total offense before breaking his ankle in the Buckeyes' regular-season finale against Michigan. He is out for the Jan. 1 national semifinal against Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.
