Ohio State Quarterback J.T. Barrett, Ex-Girlfriend Allege Each Attacked the Other

Jason Mowry/Icon Sportswire J.T. Barrett accounted for 45 touchdowns as a redshirt freshman this season but broke his ankle last month against Michigan.

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

Columbus Police responded to calls for a domestic dispute at Barrett’s apartment. Barrett and the woman both declined to file charges, and police said that neither had visible injuries.

The case will be referred to the prosecutor’s office, and any charges would have to be prompted by either Barrett or his ex-girlfriend.

Barrett, a redshirt freshman who started the entire regular season for the No. 4 Buckeyes before breaking his ankle against Michigan, accused the woman of refusing to leave his apartment, according to the police report.

In a separate call, the woman said Barrett choked her and flung her across the room.

Ohio State spokesman Jerry Emig told the Columbus Dispatch that the school was “aware of the report.”

“We understand there were no charges filed,” he told the paper. “We are looking into it.”
