Two OU football players arrested on pot complaints

— NORMAN (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 said deputies arrested wide receiver Jalen Saunders and defensive back Cortez Johnson about 2 a.m. Sunday during a traffic stop in Norman.

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

She didn't know whether either man has an attorney or the date of their initial court 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.
