Oklahoma lineman arrested for DUI

MOORE — Oklahoma defensive lineman Chuka Ndulue was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence early Saturday morning.

He was taken into custody by OU police around 4 a.m., and released from the Cleveland County Detention center about five hours later.

Ndulue, 21, played in all 13 games for the Sooners last season. He led the team in sacks with five. The junior, who started nine games last season, is the only defensive linemen on the roster with considerable starting experience.
