An Oklahoma State wrestler was jailed on complaints of possession of cocaine and public drunkenness on the day his team placed third at the NCAA Wrestling Championships, according to reports.

Oklahoma City police arrested Edward Klimara, 20, early Saturday morning at a night club after a man told police he witnessed Klimara with a small bag containing a white powdery substance in a restroom. Police said the powder tested positive for cocaine.

An OSU spokesman said Klimara has been dismissed from the wrestling team for violating team rules.
