Oklahoma football signee Courtney Gardner was arrested over the weekend for obstructing a peace officer.
According to a report from the Reno Gazette-Journal, Gardner was arrested around 1 a.m. Sunday after a vehicle he was riding in was stopped by sheriff's deputies. The driver, Ardian Smith, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and other traffic violations.
“During contact with the driver, Gardner became belligerent,” said Armando Avina, a spokesman for the Washoe County Sherrif's Office. “There were five occupants, and the deputy noted an immediate smell of alcohol and marijuana. Somebody (in the car) said, ‘Don't you know who we are? We're Division I athletes.'”
Avina said Gardner, 21, continued to yell at the deputy, who called in back-up units.
This is Gardner's second misdemeanor arrest in the Reno area in the last 2½ years, according to the Gazette-Journal. He was arrested for minor in possession of alcohol in November 2009.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Gardner played two seasons at Sierra College in Rocklin, Calif., and became one of the most sought-after juco receiver recruits in the country. He had given a verbal commitment to Arkansas but switched late in the recruiting process to Oklahoma. He has two years of eligibility at Oklahoma.

What he should have said was "Do you know who I am?" "I wasnt good enough to be a Div I athlete so I went to community college and now I'm a gooner."

You Pokes fans would have been ecstatic if the guy signed with you. Guy messed up, and he seems kind of like a thug to me, but I hope he proves me wrong. His potential is ridiculous.

Here is the best impersonation of Big game Bob that I could find regarding the subject. This also represents the goon nation fairly well too. Hope his mugshot is all over the news!!

I'm not lost at all. I don't think it's illegal to come on an opposing team's message board, or have the laws changed? I come on here and speak what I believe is true and you all get butt hurt about it. There are plenty of Cowboy posters on LandThieves so I don't know why I can't come to OrangePower.

Did not say you could not visit, nor really care. Just thought it was sad you had no crimson friends to play with. Glad to see you improving your peer group!

I would think Stoops had a conversation with him about this already and he's probably on his last chance. I hope that wakes him up. I'd Hate to see that kind of talent go to waste.

While this situation is way different because its not a dui and not during the season. I was never one that said he should be done for the year.
Smelled of pot inside the car, beligerent with a police officer and acting as though he is a god and should be allowed to do whatever because he's a goon football player? c'mon man!
