STILLWATER – Oklahoma State All-American running back and Doak Walker Award winner Ollie Gordon II was stopped by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol Sunday at approximately 2:30 a.m. and arrested in Cleveland Co. on multiple charges including speeding, not maintaining his lane, DUI under 21-years-of-age  and transporting an open container of alcohol. 

The traffic stop was made after the highway patrolman Allen May observed Gordon’s vehicle weaving in and out of his lane on Interstate 35 near southwest 19th street. The officer made the stop and then observed that Gordon appeared to smell like alcohol. The officer was able to search the vehicle and found two open bottles of alcohol. 

Gordon would not take a field sobriety test. However, he was arrested. 

The office made the arrest and the affidavit lists the following charges:

  • DUI under 21
  • Transport of open container of alcohol
  • Failure to maintain lane of traffic
  • Speeding 15-20 mph over the limit

Gordon, who did not submit to a field sobriety test, did agree to submit to the State’s test conducted at the Cleveland Co. jail. The sample came back 0.11 BrAC. Gordon was arrested and later released on Sunday according to the arrest affidavit.

Gordon is on virtually every preseason All-American list for this upcoming season. Last season he was a first-team All-American and led the NCAA Division I FBS in rushing with 1,732-yards and 20 touchdowns. He was the 2023 Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year (Coaches & AP), he finished in seventh-place for the Heisman Trophy. and along with the Doak Walker he won the 2023 Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award winner.

He has never taken a misstep until now, but there will be some punishment. 

Head coach Mike Gundy had no comment on the situation, but had been in contact with Gordon II and said he would be making thoughtful consideration to his decision on what to do including whether Gordon II would go with Gundy and his teammates quarterback Alan Bowman, linebacker Nick Martin and linebacker Collin Oliver to the Big 12 Football Media Days in Las Vegas, Nev.

This was a terrible mistake. Hopefully Ollie learns from it and never makes it again. I would hate to see him take the same path as Justin Blackmon and ruin his career.

Blackmon was suspended for one game back in 2010 when he got a DUI. I wonder if Gordon will get a similar suspension or if he'll work off his punishment over the offseason?

No excuse and deserves the negative publicity and the punishment required by law. I have ZERO tolerance for this crime and the devastation it brings many. Maybe he will learn from it and realize illegal actions have consequences for at least some in society. Grow up!!!

Learning moment for sure.

Hopefully he grasps the magnitude of this mistake and keeps himself away from this behavior going forward.

Anyone. Unless he has a chaperone or a strict curfew he can't handle the night life in Oklahoma so keep him out of Vegas for sure.

As a pastor for the better part of 50 years, as a father and grandfather, and as an old man that was once a young one, it has been my experience and observation that hard knock lessons are the best ways to "knock" sense into human beings. Ollie learned a lesson and HCMG will deal with his star's transgression with just the right mixture of justice and mercy.

I set the over/under at 1.5 game suspension. May be too high.....unsure.

too high, IMO.

I heard the Blackmon got 1 game suspension, but I'm not certain about that.

my guess is either NO suspension, since it's so early in the summer, OR one game to start the season.

Blackmon got one game for sure. It was also the first game of the season. While heading back from Dallas. Basically the same situation.

I have thought about Blackmon on this issue before. I hope if this is a problem in Ollies life he gets what he needs.

Ummm, no it wasn't! It was in October of 2010 after he and a couple of his teammates went to a Monday night game in Dallas to see Dez Bryant play!!! He was pulled over in Carrollton, Texas after the game and arrested for DUI!!! I believe it was after the fifth or sixth game and I believe we played K State and won 24-14 while he served his one game suspension!!!

So underaged dui. While driving back from Texas. Only difference is it's not during the season.

yes, essentially the same thing, as you stated, except we don't yet know what his penalty might be.

so far Gundy has chosen to reward him with a trip to Vegas.
