As first reported by the Tulsa World, Littlehead is accused of punching a woman in the face at a party in March, according to court documents.
As of 10 p.m. Thursday, Littlehead was not being held at the Cherokee County Detention Center.
This is Littlehead’s third run-in with the law in the past eight months.
He was charged in December with one count of misdemeanor drug paraphernalia possession after OSU police found two homemade smoking devices with residue at his on-campus residence. He pleaded guilty in February, and his final sentence was deferred until Aug. 27. He was also suspended for the Fiesta Bowl by OSU coach Mike Gundy.
In May, Littlehead was arrested in Tahlequah on a complaint of public intoxication.
An OSU spokesman said Thursday afternoon that Littlehead's status as a member of the Cowboys had not changed. Last season, Littlehead started four games as a redshirt freshman and recorded 16 tackles and a sack. He is listed as a backup on the preseason depth chart.
