OU LB Londell Taylor charged with DUI

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Oklahoma linebacker Londell Taylor is yet to make his way onto the football field for the Sooners this season, and odds are he won't be seeing any action in the near future either. That's what happens when you're arrested on charges of DUI and leaving the scene of an accident, as Taylor was on Saturday in Norman.

According to the Tulsa World, Taylor was arrested about an hour after Oklahoma's win against Missouri on Saturday night. Taylor was involved in a car accident just east of Oklahoma's campus and left the scene before being apprehended by the police.

The arrest report says that Taylor admitted to the arresting officers that he'd been drinking and struggled with the sobriety tests before blowing a 0.14 on a breathalyzer test. Taylor was then arrested and released after posting $1,000 bond and he has a court date set for October 11th.

Oklahoma is yet to release a statement on Taylor's arrest.

Taylor was originally a member of Oklahoma's 2007 recruiting class, but spent the last four years playing baseball in the Detroit Tigers organization after being selected in the 13th round of the 2007 MLB Amateur Draft. After being released by the Tigers, he decided to give football another shot and walked on to the Sooners.
