Oklahoma State athlete charged with aggravated DUI

STILLWATER, Okla. — An Oklahoma State athlete was charged Monday with aggravated driving under the influence.

A Payne County sheriff's deputy arrested wrestler Dallas Brooks Bailey, 21, Sunday, according to his charge. He was pulled over while driving a pickup on 19th Avenue just east of Country Club Road, his charge states.

Aggravated DUI is a charge for drivers who have a blood-alcohol content level of .15 or higher.

Bailey was booked into the Payne County Jail at 5:56 a.m. Sunday. He was released on a personal recognizance bond at 10:40 a.m., a jailer said.

Bailey appeared in court Monday with attorney Willie Baker and pleaded not guilty. He returns to court Sept. 19, court records show.

Bailey is a 165-pound wrestler for the Cowboys. Last year, he finished third at the Big 12 Championship in his weight class, and lost back-to-back matches at the NCAA tournament. He had a 21-6 overall record before heading into the postseason tournaments.
