Charges against a Youngstown State University starting defensive back were dropped after a judge found his brother impersonated him when he was arrested.

Dale Peterman, 22, was arrested Aug. 13 for failing to show up to court appearances in Girard and Warren.

A Warren Municipal Court judge on Wednesday dismissed charges of marijuana possession and speeding stemming from a May 12, 2012 traffic stop on East Market Street.

The judge said Peterman’s brother, Darrell, gave troopers his brother’s name and identification.

Troopers saw marijuana on the driver’s lap and a small amount of marijuana in a baggie inside a mason jar tucked in a backpack.

Peterman was, however, found guilty in Girard for failing to have an operating license while driving.

Peterman started 11 games as a cornerback for the Penguins last season

He starred at Ursuline High School and was named First Team All-Ohio his senior season, when the Irish won a state championship.

He transferred to YSU after spending a year at George Military College and another year at City College of San Francisco.
