Ohio State Quarterback Jack Miller’s OVI Charge Reduced to Reckless Operation

The charge for operating a vehicle during a damage against Ohio State backup quarterback Jack Miller was dropped during his trial at the Franklin County Municipal Court Thursday morning.

Miller pleaded guilty to a felony traffic ticket charge of reckless operation and was ordered to pay a $ 150 fine.

Ryan Day said Miller could return with the team immediately on Thursday afternoon.

“We’ll look at that today and just get the final details on it, but it looks like this afternoon we’re going to reinstate him on the team,” Day said.

Miller has been suspended from the Ohio State football team since November 5, when he was arrested for OVI and for driving on marked lanes. The charge for driving on marked lanes was also dismissed Thursday morning.

Prior to his suspension, Miller was the third string receiver of Ohio State. In four game appearances this season, Miller completed seven of 14 passing attempts for 101 yards without touchdowns or interceptions. Quinn Ewers has been Ohio State’s third-string quarterback behind CJ Stroud and Kyle McCord for the past two games while Miller was suspended.

A four-star recruit in the 2020 class, Miller is in his second season with the Ohio State football program.
