2 Okla. football players arrested in traffic stop

Posted: Updated:

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say two University of Oklahoma football players have been arrested on possession of marijuana complaints.

Cleveland County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Meghan McCormick says deputies arrested wide receiver Jalen Saunders and defensive back Cortez Johnson around 2 a.m. Sunday during a traffic stop in Norman.

McCormick says both Saunders and Johnson were booked into the Cleveland County jail and were released between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. Sunday.

McCormick says she doesn't know if either Saunders or Johnson has an attorney or when they're due in court for an initial appearance.

The arrests come after the No. 12 Sooners (10-2, 8-1 Big 12) beat TCU 24-17 on Saturday.

A university spokesman didn't immediately respond to a phone message or email seeking comment Sunday.
