COLUMBUS (WCMH) – Former Ohio State athlete Bri’onte Dunn was arrested for drug possession in Grandview on Friday.

According to police, officers were dispatched to the 800 block of Junction Way around 8:43 a.m., where they discovered a woman who had overdosed.

Police administrated two doses of Narcan and she regained consciousness. The woman was later transported to a local hospital.
