Two University of Oklahoma football players are out of jail after being arrested less than two weeks apart. Now, News 9 is learning of a third alleged incident involving a different OU football player at an Oklahoma City nightclub.

Redshirt Junior wide receiver Deion Burks was arrested on June 1, and charged in Cleveland County with DUI, open container, and speeding.

Sophomore defensive back Makari Vickers was arrested early Wednesday morning by the OU Police Department.

In Burks’ case, an Oklahoma Highway Patrolman wrote in a report that before 3 a.m. on June 1, the 21-year-old’s black BMW was seen abruptly changing lanes around other drivers on Interstate 35 near Indian Hills road, driving 24 miles per hour over the 65 miles per hour speed limit.

The Trooper said he discovered an open bottle of tequila and Burks admitted to drinking at an Oklahoma City nightclub called Sin City and was “just trying to get home.” According to the report, Burks blew a 0.09 blood alcohol level.

On Wednesday, a Cleveland County judge denied a protective order filed by a woman who claims a third player spit in her face outside the Sin City nightclub on June 1, before slapping her friend in the face. That friend filed a report with Oklahoma City Police.

The woman said in a sworn affidavit, "I do not feel safe around him." News 9 is not naming the third player because no arrests have been made.

The University sent News 9 a statement on both Burks and Vickers arrests saying they are "aware of the matter" and it is "being addressed internally".
