Pettigrew, 22, was arrested around early Sunday morning after police officers responded to an altercation involving 10 to 15 people at a residence, Stillwater Police Lt. Mike Metcalf said.
The group was asked to disperse, but Pettigrew refused to leave and allegedly elbowed an officer in the chest, Metcalf said. Pettigrew was booked into the Stillwater jail and transferred to the Payne County jail before being released.
He will be arraigned in Payne County District Court.
Pettigrew, who caught 35 passes for 540 yards and four touchdowns last season, announced last week that he would return for his senior season at Oklahoma State instead of entering the NFL draft early.
``We are gathering information,'' Oklahoma State spokesman Kevin Klintworth said. ``Coach (Mike) Gundy is aware of the situation.''
Klintworth said Gundy was out of town recruiting and unavailable for comment.
