Early Saturday morning, Oklahoma Sooners fans received some bad news.

Police reportedly arrested starting kicker Calum Sutherland for public intoxication. According to a report form OU Daily Sports, police arrested Sutherland at approximately 4:46 a.m. Saturday morning and took him to the Cleveland County Jail.

Details surrounding his arrest remain mum at the moment.

Sutherland has started all three games for the Sooners as their extra point and field goal kicker. He's 23-for-23 on point-after attempts and 2-of-4 on field goals this season.

Oklahoma has the weekend off after taking down UCLA last weekend. The Sooners boast one of the most-potent offenses in the country led by Heisman candidate Jalen Hurts, but don't tell Hurts about that "rat poison."

Despite all of the success the Sooners have had this season, losing Sutherland wouldn't be ideal for head coach Lincoln Riley and company. The redshirt sophomore is the only player to attempt a kick for Oklahoma this season.

We'll have to wait and see how the situation plays out before passing judgement.

Next up for Oklahoma is a conference battle against Texas Tech next Saturday.
