OU's Bomar cited for MIP, again



Get the inside scoop on your favorite team:

OKLAHOMA CITY - For the second time in six months, University of Oklahoma starting quarterback Rhett Bomar has been cited for being a minor in possession of alcohol.

Bomar was cited Friday in Oklahoma City after an undercover police officer spotted him drinking beer at the New Orleans Hornets basketball game at the Ford Center, police said Saturday.

Bomar was cited for the same offense in September in Norman after police responding to a party said they found him holding a mixed drink. That complaint later was dismissed for a lack of evidence.

OU head coach Bob Stoops is aware of the latest incident, but declined to comment publicly, said Kenny Mossman, associate athletic director for communications.

"He [Stoops] will handle it internally," Mossman said.

Bomar, 20, was sitting with several friends when an officer saw him pouring beer into a cup, said Oklahoma City Police Sgt. J.F. Balderrama.

"Apparently they were all sitting in the same section, and Mr. Bomar was taking the beer, putting it in a white cup and taking sips of it during the game," Balderrama said.

After the game, Bomar was approached by officers and acknowledged having several drinks, Balderrama said.

Bomar was taken into custody and transported to the police station, where he posted a bond and was released, Balderrama said.

Bomar pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor charge, and a municipal court arraignment date was set for 8 a.m. on May 15, according to a clerk at the Oklahoma City Municipal Court.

As a redshirt freshman last season, Bomar set an Oklahoma freshman record with 2,018 passing yards as OU went 8-4 with a win in the Holiday and was ranked No. 22 in the final AP poll.

Spring practice at OU begins March 20.
