Miller was Ohio State’s third-string quarterback this season.
Miller was initially arrested on Nov. 5 and charged with operating a vehicle while impaired near East 15th Avenue and North 4th Street at 1:30 a.m. Four days later, head coach Ryan Day said Miller was suspended.
On Nov. 18, the OVI charge against Miller was reduced to minor misdemeanor reckless operation, resulting in a $150 fine and court fees. Day announced later that same day that Miller was reinstated on the team.
