Last week, Oklahoma State defensive lineman Christian Littlehead was charged with misdemeanor assault and battery stemming from a beer pong incident in March. Though the very details of what allegedly happened ooze classy, it is Littlehead’s third run-in with the law in the past year.
Based on that, one would think his days with the Cowboys are numbered.
Perhaps they are, but for now, the backup D-lineman is practicing with the team (the warrant issued for his arrest was recalled Friday).
“I’ve always followed the policy that guys are relatively innocent until proven guilty,” Mike Gundy said Saturday. “And that’s the only way that we can do things. Oklahoma State people have to trust that once I get the information, I’m going to do what’s best for this school.”
Littlehead is due to appear in court on September 24.
Littlehead was arrested in May for being drunk in public. He was also arrested in early December on one count of possession of drug paraphernalia which resulted in his suspension from the Fiesta Bowl.
