Oregon State senior CB Jordan Poyer, 21, was arrested on a charge of second-degree criminal trespass, according to Corvallis Police.
Poyer was detained by the Impulse Bar and Grill staff during a fight at 1:52 a.m. Saturday morning. Police discovered the bar staff excluded Poyer from the premises after a Feb. 5 incident.
Oregon State officials say they know about the incident and are gathering more facts, and the matter is being handled internally.
Poyer was an all-conference starter last season and is considered an NFL prospect next year.
“It was no barfight, ppl that know me know im not like that. Big misunderstanding on what really happen, but it is what it is,” Poyer said through this Twitter. “This situation got blown wayyy out of porportion its almost funny.”
This is the second recent incident at Impulse to involved OSU football players. Malcolm Marable, a 20-year-old sophomore CB, was arrested on charges of violent conduct at 12:04 a.m. after he hit a downtown nightclub security person while trying to free teammate Ryan Murphy.
Murphy, 19, was detained by an Impulse staff member because he tried to enter the bar using the driver’s license of teammate Anthony Watkins. Murphy was cited for trespassing and misrepresentation of age.
All players who have had run-ins with the law — including CB Sean Martin with a DUII — are still on the team as things are sorted out.
