Justin Blackmon wasn't the only Oklahoma State Cowboys star who had an encounter with Stillwater police early Sunday.
Wide receiver Tracy Lamonte Moore, 21, was cited for outraging public decency, police said. Police contacted Moore at about 2 a.m. on the Washington Street Strip south of the OSU campus about an hour before other officers arrested Blackmon in a different part of town.
Moore will take over Blackmon's position as the Cowboys' starting receiver this fall.
Stillwater police Capt. Randy Dickerson said Moore was walking with a group along the strip and indicated he was leaving but would be right back. The man jogged past two officers and entered an alley. The officers reported seeing him urinate in the alley, Dickerson said. Bar employees standing in the alley also witnessed the event, he said.
Police cited and released Moore, Dickerson said. He was issued a $249 fine.
Moore was not taken to jail Sunday, but he indicated to officers he had been arrested before for public intoxication, Dickerson said. Stillwater police records show Moore was arrested March 24 on a public intoxication complaint.
Both cases are prosecuted through Stillwater Municipal Court, Dickerson said. A court employee said the public intoxication complaint was disposed of April 19. No court appearance was required. Moore did not contest the complaint, she said. He paid $184 bail in the case. Moore has not been officially charged with outraging public decency, she said.
"We are looking into the matter and have nothing more to say at this time," Oklahoma State University spokesman Gary Shutt said. Moore is a senior from Tulsa.
