Oklahoma State linebacker Alex Odiari Odiari was cited for being in a bar underage, possessing a fake ID and most disturbing violating a protective order obtained by his ex-girlfriend.
Odiari's ex-girlfriend obtained an emergency protection order on July 5 to protect her from Odiari after she claimed Odiari had shown violent tendencies during a previous "dating relationship."
To obtain the EPO, the woman claimed Odiari in the past had thrown her against a wall and repeatedly grabbed and shoved her.
The woman also stated during the relationship he made several threats and said he would kill her and the next guy she dated if they broke up.
Odiari showed up at the same bar she was and appeared to have initiated some contact with her while there. That led to a call to the police.
This is part of a bad summer for Oklahoma State athletics,alcohol, and local bars. This is, though, the first football player to get in trouble. Perhaps Odiari thought he was part of the basketball team:
- Senior Guard, and co-Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, Marcus Dove charged with a DUI, reportedly blows a 0.23 on the breathalyzer when pulled over and suspended indefinitely on July 17.
- Guard Obi Muonelo arrested for underage drinking in a local bar on June 23.
- Yet another guard, Terrel Harris was arrested for having a fake ID while trying to enter a bar in April.
It's not like things don't get dull enough for players in the offseason stuck just taking summer classes in Stillwater. Now they have to do it sober.
