STILLWATER, Okla. —
One of the Oklahoma State wrestlers charged with obstructing police in October 2010 was arrested early Friday morning for public intoxication.
Christopher Perry, 21, was arrested at about 1:30 a.m. today outside Dirty's Tavern at 421 S. Washington St. Perry is the nephew of wrestling coach John Smith.
Wrestler Luke Silver and former wrestler Adam Rosholt were also arrested on a public intoxication complaint Friday morning.
A Stillwater police officer noticed the men outside the bar, then left the area for a traffic stop, Capt. Randy Dickerson said. Later the officer drove by again and saw them outside. Perry needed help to stand, and he was arrested, Dickerson said. The other two began arguing with the officer, and he called for assistance, Dickerson said. Silver was arrested once help arrived.
After the arrests, Rosholt tried to re-enter the bar, Dickerson said.
"The officers informed him he was too intoxicated to be in the bar legally and needed to leave," Dickerson said. "Some friends attempted to walk him from the area after being told four more times by the officer to leave."
The man walked a short distance, stopped and was arrested.
None of them have been charged.
Perry was accused of lying to Stillwater police last year to protect another wrestler, Alexander Munoz. Munoz pleaded guilty to larceny of lost property and unlawful use of a credit card. He was accused of taking a debit card dropped during a fistfight at a party and using the card to buy beer.
Perry and four other wrestlers — Jonathon Robert Morrison, 21; Alexander Meade, 20; Blake Matthew Rosholt, 20 — were accused along with of lying to Stillwater police to protect another wrestler, Alexander Munoz. Munoz, 20, pleaded guilty to taking a debit card dropped during a fistfight at a party and using the card to buy beer. The others told police a fabricated story, but another wrestler told the truth, police said at the time.
The cases against Perry, Morrison, Meade and Blake Rosholt are pending in Payne County District Court. They are expected to appear in court Monday.
