Odiari, 20, arrested with fake ID in bar
STILLWATER, Okla. -- Linebacker Alex Odiari, who started four games for Oklahoma State last season, has been arrested on allegations he was in a bar while underage and violated an emergency protection order.
Stillwater police responded to a report of a possible emergency protection order violation at Willie's Bar at 12:36 a.m. Friday and found Odiari's ex-girlfriend, who claimed Odiari had violated the order by making contact with her inside the bar.
Police found Odiari, 20, to be in possession of a fake ID and arrested him.
Oklahoma State spokesman Kevin Klintworth said the team was in a "fact-finding mode" and hadn't taken any action regarding Odiari, who had 14 tackles and one and a half sacks in 11 games last year as a sophomore.
"We're still investigating it," Klintworth said. "Coach [Mike] Gundy will decide on a course of action when he has more information."
The emergency protection order was issued July 5. In it, Odiari's ex-girlfriend claimed he had thrown her to the ground, thrown her against a wall and repeatedly grabbed or shoved her in their "dating relationship" that had existed since 2006.
The ex-girlfriend also claimed in the order that Odiari threatened several times to kill her and the next guy she dated if they broke up.
