Oklahoma State sophomore defensive end Cole Walterscheid ended what has been a strong season for Oklahoma State in not having issues off the field. Walterscheid was arrested on Sunday morning by the Oklahoma State Police and charged with public intoxication. The Stillwater News-Press first reported this story.
Walterscheid, who had two tackles in the win over TCU and also was a factor on a lot of other plays including at least one sack, has 20 tackles on the season, 5.5 tackles for loss, and two sacks.
His first court appearance on the charge will be Wednesday at 1:45 p.m. in the courtroom of Judge R.L. Hert.
Walterscheid is 21 years old and could face a fine of up to $100 and no more than 30 days in jail, but considering this is a first at offense he should, if guilty or pleads no contest, wind up with a much lesser penalty. Oklahoma State nor head coach Mike Gundy has had any comment on the incident.
Walterscheid is a starter and is backed up by junior Tralund Webber.
