Oklahoma WR Jalil Farooq Arrested in Norman While Driving Erratically

Oklahoma‘s junior wide receiver Jalil Farooq was arrested in Norman on Thursday night due to four outstanding municipal warrants.

Norman police reportedly pulled over Farooq’s vehicle for reckless driving with an expired license tag which eventually led to the Maryland native’s arrest.


According to local police reports, officers pulled over Farooq for driving erratically, and during the traffic stop, officers found out that the junior wideout had four outstanding municipal warrants.

Outstanding warrants are valid arrest warrants that were issued in the past but had not yet been fulfilled. Once the officers discovered the multiple outstanding warrants for Farooq’s arrest, the Sooners wide receiver was taken into custody.

Jalil Farooq has been one of the more productive members of the Sooners’ wide receiver group this season as the junior has hauled in 26 grabs for 449 yards and two scores in 2023.

Despite Farooq’s legal status, reports broke that Farooq’s status for the final Bedlam series is not in jeopardy, and will be expected to play.

The Sooners head to Stillwater on Saturday, November 4th to take on Mike Gundy and the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the last game of the Bedlam series as both teams look to break the five-way tie in the Big 12 title race.
