Police spokeswoman Jennifer Newell says Andrew Fitzgerald and Steven Pledger were ticketed for petty larceny Saturday night and released.
Newell said Monday the citation was written by a security officer in Dillard’s. She says according to the ticket, the security officer reported seeing Fitzgerald and Pledger about 8:50 p.m. concealing shirts inside a blue, plastic bag.
Pledger, a 6-4 freshman guard, played 24 minutes and scored nine points in Oklahoma’s 80-71 upset victory over No. 9 Texas on Saturday. Fitzgerald started the game, played 19 minutes and scored three points.
Team spokesman Mike Houck says the situation will be handled internally.
