Sean Sutton arrested on drug chargesPosted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports:
Former Oklahoma State basketball coach Sean Sutton has been arrested and accused of attempting to illegally obtain prescription painkillers from out of state.
Sutton was arrested Thursday night when he arrived to pick up a shipment of painkillers under another person’s name, said Mark Woodward, a spokesman for the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.
Sutton was arrested on charges of attempting to possess a controlled dangerous substance and use of a communications device to facilitate a felony, Woodward said Friday.
A phone message left for Sutton was not immediately returned Friday. Formal charges had not yet been filed by the district attorney’s office, and it was unclear whether Sutton had an attorney. His arrest was first reported by The Tulsa World.
