COLUMBUS, OH (WOIO/WBNS) -

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett pleaded guilty in court Tuesday to a citation for operating a vehicle while impaired.

Barrett, 20, entered the plea in Franklin County Municipal Court in Columbus. His license was suspended for 180 days, he has to attend a three-day intervention program and was fined $400, plus court costs.

Barrett was cited at a police checkpoint Oct. 31. A breath test showed his blood-alcohol content was above the legal limit. 

After the incident Coach Urban Meyer suspended Barrett for one game and said the quarterback will forfeit his summer financial aid as part of his punishment.

Monday, Meyer announced Barrett will start this weekend against Illinois. QB Cardale Jones filled in for last week's win against Minnesota.
