Cowboy in trouble returns, Gundy talks

Oklahoma State defensive tackle Christian Littlehead returned to practice on Saturday, days after being charged with misdemeanor assault and battery.

A woman reported to police back in March that Littlehead punched her in the face at a party, and he is due to appear in court on September 24. He didn't practice on Friday, the same day the warrant for his arrest was recalled.

This latest incident makes three run-ins with the law for Littlehead since December. All three were misdemeanor offenses.

“I've always followed the policy that guys are relatively innocent until proven guilty,” Gundy told reporters after Saturday's scrimmage. “And that's the only way that we can do things. Oklahoma State people have to trust that once I get the information, I'm going to do what's best for this school."

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out, but while Gundy gathers the facts from what sounds like a very ugly incident, it's surprising to see Littlehead back on the field.

Gundy will ultimately make the call for how long he stays there.
