TMZ has published video of Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett’s drunk driving arrest.

Barrett was cited for operating a vehicle while intoxicated in the early morning hours of Oct. 31. He was suspended for the Buckeyes’ game against Minnesota last week, but will likely start on Saturday against Illinois.

In the video, Barrett performs a field sobriety test, after which the officer informs him he is being placed under arrest. While handcuffing Barrett, the officer says, “You’ve been very polite with me, you’ve been very cooperative.”

Earlier this week, Barrett was fined $400 and his license was suspended for 180 days after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor OVI charge.
