Report: Three Longhorns arrested Monday morning

This is advice I feel like I've already given to college football players before, but apparently it hasn't gotten through. The gist: If you're at a club or a party and the police show up and ask you to do something, as long as it isn't some kind of insane demand, just do as they say.

It's advice that three Texas starters reportedly did not heed early Monday morning.

According to, Alex Okafor, Kenny Vaccaro and Barrett Matthews were arrested Monday morning at a night club.
According to police, officers were called out to a disturbance in the 300 block of East Sixth Street at 1:29 a.m.

The officers asked the four men to leave the establishment. But when they refused, the officers took them into custody, police said.

Players Alex Okafor, Kenneth Vaccaro, Barrett Matthews and former player Eryon Barnet were charged with failure to obey a lawful order, a misdemeanor charge.
See, now by not listening to the police, these three players took something that wouldn't have been a big deal and made it a big deal. Had they just left, there's no arrest and they go home without anybody finding out about it.

Now? Well, while Texas has yet to issue a statement about the arrest, even though this isn't a big deal, there will likely be some consequences for it.
