— The drug paraphernalia possession charge against Oklahoma State defensive tackle Christian Littlehead was dropped Friday after the case was dismissed by the state.

Littlehead pleaded guilty to the charge in February and received a six-month deferred sentence. He was charged with the misdemeanor in December when OSU Police found two homemade smoking devices with residue in Littlehead's on-campus residence. That resulted in Littlehead being suspended for the Fiesta Bowl by head coach Mike Gundy.

Littlehead's record will be expunged.

Littlehead, a sophomore, is a backup defensive tackle. As a part-time starter last season, he recorded 16 tackles and one sack.

Littlehead has had two other run-ins with the law since arriving at OSU. In May, he was arrested in Tahlequah on a public intoxication complaint. Then last month, he was charged with misdemeanor assault and battery, which has since been dropped after the case was dismissed by the state.
