NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma sophomore quarterback Kendal Thompson has been arrested for public intoxication and refusing to obey a police officer's orders.
School spokesman Pete Moris issued a statement Friday saying OU officials are aware of the arrest ``and are handling it internally.'' Moris said coach Bob Stoops was not available for comment.
Oklahoma City television station KOCO says Norman police were investigating a loud party early Friday when they found Thompson lying in the grass outside an apartment. Authorities say Thompson reportedly refused to obey orders and tried to walk away.
Thompson was in a three-way battle for the starting quarterback job at OU. He is the son of former Sooner quarterback Charles Thompson.
Police did not immediately return messages left by The Associated Press.
