Starting Oklahoma State defensive end Cole Walterscheid was arrested on Sunday morning on charges of public intoxication. The arrest came about 12 hours after the Cowboys’ win over TCU on Saturday.
According to the O’Colly, the student newspaper at Oklahoma State, Walterscheid was found in a grassy area in Stillwater asleep (or possibly passed out) with the a car marker from the popular sub chain Jimmy John’s at about 2 a.m.
That’s not even the best part of the story though as Walterscheid tried to sit in the passenger seat when the police officer was taking him to the police department. Here’s what supposedly happened next.
When asked what he was doing, Walterscheid reportedly told the officer he was walking home and that he got the car topper “at work.” The officer asked Walterscheid whether he worked at Jimmy John’s, and Walterscheid replied, “No, that’s not from Jimmy John’s,” according to the affidavit.
Walterscheid was then booked following his admission that he took the sign from Jimmy John’s. Fortunately, the store is not pursuing any charges against him, but he will make a court appearance on Wednesday for the public intoxication charge.
The redshirt sophomore has 20 tackles on the season to go with 5.5 tackles for loss, two sacks and a fumble recovery.
