Oklahoma Sooners kicker Calum Sutherland has found himself in some potential trouble. According to The Oklahoman’s Joe Mussatto, Sutherland is being investigated by OU’s Title IX office following an assault allegation made by his girlfriend.
A police officer’s affidavit from the kicker’s arrest on September 21st included a charge of public intoxication and added the following details from an apartment complex on Oklahoma’s campus:
“During contact with the female party she stated a short physical and verbal altercation occurred. I did not observe any injuries on her person. The female subject stated her boyfriend was Calum Sutherland. From information obtained by the victim an uninvolved witnesses it was believed Calum was extremely intoxicated and there was a high likelihood he was going to return back to the apartments and continue to cause problems.”
An Oklahoma University spokesman told The Oklahoman that Sutherland has been indefinitely suspended after the school was made aware of the investigation.
Sutherland is a redshirt sophomore who began the season as the team’s starting kicker. He hasn’t appeared in a game since Sept. 14 against UCLA. Last week, it was Gabe Brkic handling field-goal duties for OU in their 55-16 win over Texas Tech.
