Jhajuan Seales Arrested On DUI

Oklahoma State receiver Jhajuan Seales is not expected to play Saturday against Texas Tech after being arrested last weekend on suspicion of DUI.

Showing incredibly bad timing and decision making, especially considering the events of the previous day and the tragedy during the Oklahoma State homecoming parade, it came to light in reports Thursday that Cowboys junior wide receiver Jhajuan Seales was arrested by Stillwater police early Sunday morning hours on suspicion of driving while having a blood or breath alcohol content of .08 or more and transporting an opened container of alcohol.

The arrest is listed in online court records and has been reported on multiple media outlets. 

Seales, who is from Port Arthur, Texas, was due back in court at the Payne County Courthouse on Thursday afternoon to answer to the charges. He was arrested and later released on Sunday on the complaints.

Seales has had previous issues with the law after being charged with public intoxication last October following arriving back in Stillwater from a road game. Police reports show he was found with former teammate, Juwan Offray, in the drive-thru of the Stillwater Whataburger restaurant. Seales was in the driver's seat and the car was running, but was not moving.

In this most recent arrest Seales was driving a 2012 Nissan Altima near the intersection of West University and South Knoblock when he was stopped by officers. 

This season, Seales has 12 receptions for 164 yards, and in the game against Kansas last Saturday caught two passes for 13 yards. He has not been a primary target this season in the OSU offense.

Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy is reportedly handling any punishment for Seales with the football program internally and has not issued any statement. Gundy's punishment is generally very consistent in these manners and it would not be expected that Seales would make the trip and be involved in the Cowboys upcoming game with Texas Tech. From that point on it would be a wait and see.

Considering this is a repeated issue for Seales it could be more severe than his punishment last season. Last season it took some time before Seales found opportunities again. After the incident he only caught five passes the rest of the season.
