STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -Oklahoma State tight end Brandon Pettigrew pleaded not guilty on Tuesday during his arraignment on a felony charge of assault and battery on a police officer.
Pettigrew, 22, also faces a misdemeanor count of public intoxication. Pettigrew's next appearance in Payne County District Court is scheduled for March 3.
Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy will not comment about Pettigrew's status until he returns from a recruiting trip, athletic department spokesman Kevin Klintworth said.
Pettigrew was arrested around 1:20 a.m. Sunday after police officers responded to an altercation involving 10 to 15 people at a Stillwater 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, 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.
