OU RB cited on assault and battery

OU redshirt freshman running back Daniel Brooks was cited earlier this week but no charges have been filed.

Oklahoma redshirt freshman running back Daniel Brooks was cited earlier this week on a citizen's complaint of misdemeanor assault and battery, according to a Norman Police Department incident report.

NewsOK.com first reported the story Friday afternoon. The alleged incident occurred at 1:45 a.m. Monday morning on Campus Corner.

Criminal charges haven't been filed and the parties are seeking to settle the dispute out of court, Norman Police Capt. Tom Easley told NewsOK. Brooks signed the complaint and was released at the scene.

Brooks has been unable to get on track since signing with OU for the Class of 2012. In the spring of his senior season, he tore his ACL at a track meet while performing the long jump. Brooks was still in full recovery last season and redshirted.

OU spokesman Pete Moris issued a statement confirming OU coach Bob Stoops is aware of the matter and that it would be handled internally.

Going into this season, Brooks was moved to defensive back, but when asked about Brooks' situation last month, OU coach Bob Stoops said Brooks was back at running back.

"Daniel's been doing really well," said Stoops. "Mostly on scout team right now, but he works hard and he's a great, great worker. He makes good cuts and he's got some of his speed back and he's doing a nice job."

Brooks, from Rockdale, Texas, spent his senior football season at Port Lavaca (Texas) Calhoun before transferring back to Rockdale for track season.
