Sunday morning when Dove crossed the double yellow line twice.

"We've spoken to players and have told them you should never get behind the wheel if you've consumed alcohol,” Sutton said. "He should have walked home or had someone drive him.”

The affidavit states when Dove approached the intersection of McElroy and Monroe, his vehicle crossed the middle of the roadway, failed to remain right on the sufficient width of the road and stopped in the middle of the intersection.

Police documents state Dove was taken to Payne County jail at 3:47 a.m. Sunday morning and was released at 10:57 a.m. on a personal recognizance bond.

Dove is the third OSU basketball player to be arrested since April. Sophomore guard Obi Muonelo was arrested last month for being underage in a bar. Terrel Harris was charged with trying to use false identification to enter a bar and obstructing an officer on April 21.

Earlier this week Sutton conducted a team meeting and told players he was embarrassed and he will not tolerate players tainting the image of the basketball program.

"Marcus is extremely remorseful,” Sutton said. "He feels terrible about letting down the program, his teammates and our fans.”
