Two Oklahoma State football players went to Whataburger early Sunday morning for a bite. But after falling asleep in the drive-thru line, wide receiver Jhajuan Seales and freshman cornerback Juwan Offray were charged with public intoxication.

The arrests occurred 10 hours after Oklahoma State's 42-9 loss at TCU. 

While exhaustion makes sense given TCU's runaway victory, the Tulsa World reported that the arresting officers were "overwhelmed" by the smell of alcohol in the car.

via Tulsa World:

"Both males were totally asleep and oblivious to anything going on around them," one of the officers stated in the report.

The police report indicates that the officers awakened Seales and Offray by knocking on the car windows. Seales and Offray "seemed very lethargic and confused" and "their eyes were red and watery with a glassy appearance," the report states.

More from the officers' report: "I observed Seales trying to turn the vehicle off and he seemed very confused and unable to possess even the manual dexterity to simply turn the key to the off position. In fact, (Offray) had to physically help Seales turn the vehicle off."

The players are expected to pay a fine, the punishment for misdemeanor public intoxication, after spending early Sunday morning in the Stillwater jail. Offray, a backup cornerback, will have to pay an additional fine for hampering the investigation by attempting to use his friend's name at the jail before quickly admitting his real identity -- and thus dodging a felony. 

Seales is Oklahoma State's fourth-leading receiver with 236 yards and three touchdowns on 13 receptions (18.15 yards per catch).
