TAHLEQUAH, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma State defensive tackle Christian Littlehead has been charged with misdemeanor assault and battery, and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

The district attorney's office in Cherokee County filed the charge against Littlehead on Thursday after a woman reported to police that Littlehead punched her in the face and knocked her down at a birthday party in March, causing her to scrape her knees and cut her hand.

The charge was first reported by the Tulsa World.

The 6-foot-2, 312-pound Littlehead played in 12 games last season and started four times for the Cowboys, recording one sack. He was listed as a backup this season.

Littlehead was suspended for the Fiesta Bowl last season after being charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. He pleaded guilty and received a six-month deferred sentence.
