An Oklahoma State University football player was arrested, accused of driving drunk, crashing into two cars and assaulting a police officer.

Stillwater police arrested OSU junior defensive back Trey Rucker two weeks ago after a 911 caller reported a hit-and-run.

911 Call: I was lying in bed and heard a really loud crash, I’m pretty sure I just kind of witnessed a hit and run.      

The caller stepped outside to assess the damage.

911 Call: As I looked out, I saw a car like speeding away and I’m looking at two pretty bad vehicles right now.             

According to police reports, Rucker was reportedly drunk behind the wheel of a dark colored SUV that was seen speeding away.

911 Call: Tried to come outside and get a video of their license plate but they took off too fast.        

Police followed a trail of wreckage and leaking car fluids to an apartment complex, where they found Rucker in his SUV and confronted him.

Rucker: Don't got s--- on me, bro. Go ahead, shoot me. Go ahead, shoot me.  

He repeated more than a dozen times that he plays football for OSU.

Rucker: I’m a Oklahoma State, I’m a Oklahoma State, I’m a Oklahoma State, I’m a Oklahoma State player.   

Several minutes into the confrontation Rucker can be heard getting tased out of the view of the camera.

Rucker: What am I being detained for?    

After he's heard crying. Rucker claimed he's a victim of racial profiling.

Rucker: I go to Oklahoma State and I’m being racially profiled.      

He then asked officers to "call Dundy."

Rucker: Call coach, call coach, call all those coaches.

Police said Rucker was driving with a suspended out of state license.

He is also charged with driving under the influence and assault and battery on an officer.
