A Norman police officer stopped Willis on campus at about 3 a.m. Saturday, Lt. Blake Green said Sunday. Willis was arrested without incident and taken to the Cleveland County Detention Center downtown.
The 19-year-old Atlanta resident was later released on bond.
After No. 2 Oklahoma beat Colorado 77-72 Saturday afternoon, coach Jeff Capel said Willis was ``suspended indefinitely,'' but didn't elaborate.
Oklahoma athletic department spokesman Mike Houck said Sunday that Capel would have no additional comment.
Willis, a 6-foot-6 freshman guard, has played in 14 games this season for the Sooners, averaging 3.8 points and 1.6 rebounds per game.
nder were stabbed during an altercation at a Norman nightclub and required hospitalization.
Capel said then that Willis sustained ``multiple wounds, one of which resulted in a partially collapsed lung.''
According to police report, Willis and Alexander were among those caught in a melee involving guns, knives and tire irons at a private function at the club.
