Charges against Oklahoma State D-lineman dropped

Over the weekend, Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy allowed defensive lineman Chrisitan Littlehead to participate to practice even though Littlehead was charged with misdemeanor assault and battery last week stemming from a beer pong incident in March.

“I’ve always followed the policy that guys are relatively innocent until proven guilty,” 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.”

That should mean letting Littlehead play on. The charges against the sophomore have been dropped, according to court documents obtained by the Tulsa World. Additionally, Littlehead’s court costs have been waived.

Littlehead has a history of off-the-field issues beginning last December when he was busted on one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. Though a starter of four games last season, Littlehead is listed as a backup defensive lineman this season.

    This was a weird case. Almost a year between when it happenend and when the lady pressed charges. I have to think it was a jilted lover, or money was extorted. I hope this young man the best and maybe he uses it as a learning experience.
