RENO, Nevada – OU signee and Reno (Nev.) area wide receiver Courtney Gardner was arrested early Sunday for obstructing an officer, according to a report in the Reno Gazette-Journal.

Armando Avina, a public information officer for the Washoe County Sheriff's Office, told the Journal that Gardner was arrested around 1 a.m. on Sunday morning during a routine traffic stop.

The driver of the vehicle, Adrian Smith Jr., was arrested and Gardner became confrontational toward the arresting officer.

"During contact with the driver, Gardner became belligerent," Avina told the Journal. "There were five occupants, and the deputy noted an immediate smell of alcohol and marijuana. Somebody (in the car) said, ‘Don't you know who we are? We're Division I athletes.'"

The report indicated that Gardner continued to yell at the deputy, who called in back-up units. This is Gardner's second arrest, along with a minor in possession of alcohol arrest in 2009.

Gardner is a 6-4, 200-pound receiver originally from Hug High School in Reno. He has played the past two seasons at Sierra Community College in Roseville, Ca. where he improved his stock significantly. He is a four-star prospect on recruiting service Rivals.com.

Gardner originally committed to Arkansas but changed his commitment to the Sooners on Feb. 1.
