NORMAN, Okla. -- An Oklahoma defensive lineman faces a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence of alcohol under the age of 21 after police here arrested him during a traffic stop.

J.D. Quinn, 19, was detained early Tuesday after police alleged he was speeding in a 25-mph speed zone and failed to stop at a stop sign, an affidavit said.

Alcohol was detected on Quinn's breath and Quinn "admitted to drinking a six pack of beer," the arresting officer wrote in the affidavit.

Quinn took a breathalyzer test, which measured his blood alcohol content at .03 and .04, the affidavit stated. A person must register a blood-alcohol content of .02 or higher to be charged with a DUI-under the age of 21 count.

Quinn, of Garland, Texas, was taken to the Cleveland County Jail and was released after posting $1,000 bond, officials said.

A slew of injuries have pushed the redshirt freshman into the starting lineup at right guard. He made his first career start against Texas on Oct. 8, and remained in the starting lineup for the next three games.

Quinn played in a reserve role in Oklahoma's first four games.

Coach Bob Stoops declined comment, saying the matter would be handled internally.

Quinn is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 13.
