Roy Finch, one of Oklahoma’s running backs from 2010-2013, was arrested on Sunday for posession of marijuana and assaulting a police officer, according to Ryan Aber of The Oklahoman.
Edmonton, Oklahoma police were called to a car that had been parked and running for over an hour. Police found Finch in the vehicle, which smelt of marijuana. Finch allegedly swung at a police officer trying to handcuff him, ran away, and resisted arrest a second time after officers caught up to him.
According to the report, Finch is currently being held in an Oklahoma county jail.
As a sophomore, Finch impressed on the field with 605 yards on 111 carries and three touchdowns. He was a core part of an Oklahoma offense that was excellent during the 2010-2013 seasons.
Even during Finch’s best statistical season, he never lead the Sooners in rushing. That honor went to Dominque Whaley, who finished the 2011 season with 627 yards on the ground.
Finch currently plays for the Calgary Stampeders, and returned three kicks back for touchdowns during the 2017 season.
