DRUG CHARGES REDUCED FOR BERRY

Ohio State incoming freshman tailback, Jaamal Berry, had his drug charges reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor in a Miami-Dade (Florida) circuit court last Thursday.

Berry, who has been in Columbus attending summer classes at OSU since June 22 didn't appear in court. His case will be moved to a county court in Miami, where minor infractions are heard.

This is encouraging news for the star back, who was arrested in June for possessing more than 28 grams of marijuana in his car. However, there is no word as to whether any punishment will be delivered on Berry by the school or the team.

The Buckeyes begin summer practice in August.
