Oklahoma quarterback Chris Robison was arrested and charged with public Intoxication in the early hours of Sunday morning, Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office records confirm. Walk-on Ronnie Larue was also arrested for the same offense a few hours later.

Robison, an true freshman and early enrollee, had just finished his first Spring Game as a Sooner hours before his arrest. The Mesquite, Texas, native completed three of his five passes for 49 yards and ran for a touchdown in front of an announced crowd of 43,723 at Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.

This news comes just a month and a half after fellow Sooner Baker Mayfield was arrested for an alcohol-related incident in Arkansas. Oklahoma quarterbacks need to chill out!

I thought the guy looked pretty sharp out on the field on Saturday, but this is less than ideal news. However, I’m obviously not going to throw stones in this situation. A college freshman being arrested for public intoxication isn’t exactly earth-shattering news, and this situation will hopefully provide a good learning experience for the guy. I do think it’s safe to say that Robison’s remaining practices this spring will include some stadium steps and a few private sessions with Coach Schmidt.
