Oklahoma QB arrested for public intoxication, interfering with police

Kendal Thompson AP

I mean, who says the Big 12 isn’t closing the gap on the SEC?

Per, Oklahoma backup quarterback Kendal Thompson was arrested early Friday for public intoxication and interfering with a police officer (for which he was assessed a 15-yard penalty). Per the Oklahoman, officers responded to a loud party at an apartment complex. Upon arrival, officers found Thompson “lying in the grass on a hill leading up to the complex” and he “allegedly refused to obey orders, spoke in incoherent sentences and kept trying to walk away from the officers.”

Thompson was still in custody as of late Friday morning.

OU has only stated it is aware of the situation, so what (if any) punishment Thompson may face is unknown at this time.

Thompson was competing for OU’s starting quarterback job this spring, but it looked as though he was more likely to end up as Blake Bell‘s backup.

    Stoops wants Oklahoma to be up there with SEC teams, well he is getting there, but not quite the way he needs to. Maybe Stoops can begin recruiting better defensive linemen, defensive backs, and a generally a better defense. That is what Oklahoma needs, not an offensive player acting offensively…pardon the pun.

    The public intoxication violation is not a big deal, it not like a DUI which could result in someone else dying. But, dependent upon how much grace the police or DA may have the “interfering with a police officer” is something Kendal needs to hope they will drop.

    A college kid got drunk at a party and you expect him ran out of town? Get real. I am all for expecting players to be actual student-athletes, but I am not going to condemn the kid for doing something 95% of us did in college. Not like he was out driving around. His buddies maybe could have done him a favor by keeping him inside though. Heck, back in my day, the magic markers would have been out and he would have had some interesting markings on his face when he woke up though.

    How do they expect a kid whose lying in the grass to obey orders? That’s a bs charge and there is no way the da will file that . Not an Oklahoma fan but this is not a big deal

    Must be a typo Ben, cause from what I hear, only SEC players get arrested. Not the big 12, or whatever they call that league.

    I love it. Looks like Stoops needs to worry about his own program instead of talking crap about THE SEC!!!
