Thompson arrested early Friday morning
According to the arresting affidavit, Norman police officer Steven Boxford and another officer were responding to a loud party complaint at 730 Stinson St. when Boxford spotted Thompson lying on a hill on his right side and snoring.
After identifying himself to Thompson, Boxford shined a light in his face to wake him. The officer could smell alcohol coming from Thompson's person and breath, according to the affidavit.
Thompson, 20, is four days from his 21st birthday.
"As I was speaking with him, he was not making sense with incomplete sentences and was becoming harder to understand him," said Boxford in the affidavit.
After Thompson awoke, the officer said he rolled into a sitting position. Boxford told him to remain seated "many times". Thompson eventually stood again with his hand in his left pocket and did not sit down.
"He continued not to obey commands and I grabbed his right arm and completed a spinning arm bar to take the defendant to the ground," said Boxford in the affidavit. "Once on the ground, the defendant continued to fail to obey commands to put his hands behind his back and get on his stomach."
Thompson is one of three Sooner quarterbacks competing for the starting job this season. He completed 8 of 15 passes for 86 yards with one touchdown in OU's spring game last month. Bob Stoops is aware of Thompson's arrest and will "handle the matter internally" according to an OU spokesperson.
