Oklahoma State receiver pleads not guilty to drunken driving

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma State wide receiver Jhajuan Seales has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and with an open container.

The 21-year-old Seales pleaded not guilty Thursday in Payne County District Court.

An arrest report says the redshirt junior was stopped around 12:30 a.m. Sunday and failed field sobriety tests. The report says an officer found in the car a cup of liquor and two bottles of liquor with broken seals.

A message seeking comment from Seales' attorney wasn't returned late Thursday. A team spokesman has told local media that coach Mike Gundy is aware of the incident and is handling the matter internally.

Seales' arrest came hours after a woman who authorities say was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol crashed into a crowd of spectators at the school's homecoming parade, killing four people and injuring dozens more.
