CORVALLIS, Ore. — Oregon State cornerback Jordan Poyer as arrested in connection with trespassing at a nightclub near campus over the weekend. He will now have to appear June 7 in Benton County Circuit Court on one charge of second-degree trespassing.
Poyer was earlier banned from the Impulse Bar and Grill after an incident in February, but entered this weekend through an alternate entrance before being caught by bar security.
The Corvallis Gazette-Times cited Poyer’s Twitter account where he wrote: “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. This situation got blown wayyy out of porportion its almost funny.”
The Corvallis newspaper reports this isn’t the first incident at the Impulse involving OSU football players. Earlier this month, Ryan Murphy was held up by an Impulse staff member for trying to enter the bar underage. That’s when Malcolm Marable allegedly hit the security person trying to free Murphy. Marable was arrested for violent conduct.
