Oklahoma sophomore Kendal Thompson was partying four days prior to his 21st birthday, and he found out that rules are really set in stone. Kendal was arrested for ‘public intoxication and interference with official process at 1:53 a.m. on Friday morning.’ Kendal apparently had one too many and as he was being detained he was very uncooperative. Kendal was expected to compete with fellow teammates Blake Bell and Trevor Knight for the Oklahoma starting quarterback role this upcoming season.
According to the arresting affidavit found by Scooner Scoop:
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.
The affidavit continues to detail how uncooperative Kendal was during the arrest process, and it doesn’t get any better for the Oklahoma quarterback.

After Thompson awoke, the officer said he rolled into a sitting position. Boxford told him to remain seated “many times” and “asked for the other Officer to come over to my location as he was continually trying to walk away from me.”
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.”
