There's a reason mascots don't play the sports.
After a traffic stop last weekend in Alliance, OSU freshman running back Bri'onte Dunn passes a follow-up drug test in Columbus.
The Canton Repository reports the 19-year old Dunn's latest test results show there was no trace of illegal drugs in his system after he was required to take it.
The former GlenOak star's father confirmed the test results with the newspaper when the younger Dunn returned to Columbus earlier in the week.
He will be facing a minor misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct as well as seat belt and tailight violations stemming from his traffic stop Saturday night.
Police say Dunn almost ran a blinking red light and nearly struck a patrol car before he was stopped.
Dunn was initially cited by Alliance Police for drug possession and drug paraphernalia, but after police reviewed evidence including witness statements, they decided the disorderly conduct charge was more appropriate.
OSU Head Coach Urban Meyer has not made a statement on Dunn's matter. He has been known to be tough on players who have had problems off the field.

The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles says its investigation of Ohio State football players' car purchases found no evidence players received improper deals.
The agency undertook its review following allegations that two Columbus-area dealers sold vehicles to Ohio State athletes and family members at below market rates.
The BMV's 65-page report issued Tuesday said the certificates of titles for cars sold by Jack Maxton Chevrolet and Auto Direct to players and families accurately reflected the vehicles' sales prices.
Questions about players' car purchases arose in the wake of a scandal in which some players received cash and tattoos for autographs, championship rings and equipment.
