Quarterback for 1985 title team jailed for outstanding traffic warrants
EUFAULA, Okla. -- Jamelle Holieway, the starting quarterback on Oklahoma's 1985 national championship team, was jailed Friday because of outstanding traffic warrants.
Holieway had been scheduled for a nonjury trial on a misdemeanor charge of marijuana possession but was taken into custody after the trial was delayed.
Court records show that bench warrants were issued for Holieway, 41, in April on a McIntosh County speeding ticket dating to September 2006 and Haskell County tickets for speeding and driving with a suspended license from March.
Holieway had been bonded out of jail Friday evening.
