NORMAN — Oklahoma senior starting left tackle Phil Loadholt was arrested Saturday along Interstate 35 on suspicion of driving under the influence and for allegedly transporting an open container, criminal misdemeanor charges, according to Oklahoma Highway Patrol documents.

Kenny Mossman, OU senior associate athletics director in charge of communications, said he did not expect coach Bob Stoops to comment on the arrest.

The situation likely will be handled internally, and it is not expected that Loadholt, 22, will be dismissed from the team.

This is Loadholt's second arrest in two years, but first since coming to OU in January 2007.

In September 2006, during his sophomore year at Garden City (Kan.) Community College, Loadholt was arrested on allegations of disorderly conduct in Manhattan, Kan.
