Oklahoma State star running back Ollie Gordon II was arrested Sunday on suspicion of DUI and speeding charges.

Authorities said Gordon, 20, was pulled over on Interstate 35 near Moore, Okla., after being clocked at 82 mph and swerving in and out of traffic lanes.

An Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper detected "an odor associated with an alcoholic beverage" coming from the vehicle according to the incident report. Police also found two bottles of liquor in the vehicle.

Gordon was taken to Cleveland County Jail after a breath test revealed a 0.11 blood alcohol content, over the legal limit for an adult younger than 21 years old, and also failed a second test while in custody with a 0.10 BAC.

An Oklahoma State spokesperson told reporters that the university is aware of the situation but gave no further comment.

Gordon was the 2023 Doak Walker Award winner as the nation's top running back. The All-American was also named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year and finished seventh in the Heisman Trophy vote after rushing for 1,732 yards and 21 touchdowns in 14 games.
