Postado Abril 17, 2018

A former OU football star who now plays in the Canadian Football League was arrested after allegedly assaulting an Edmond police officer.

According to the report, police were called to investigate a vehicle that had been left running in the parking lot of an apartment complex for more than an hour.

Police say that when officers attempted to put Finch in handcuffs, he allegedly tried to punch one of the officers and then ran away.

However, they say he continued to resist the officers.

Officers set up a perimeter and located Finch walking in a breezeway at the Stonebridge apartments.

"Drive stuns were applied and we were able to place Finch into custody", the police report says.

Police reported that when officers tried to arrest him, another fight was started.

Police say that after another altercation ensued, officers deployed a taser, hitting Finch between the shoulder blades. "During the struggle, Finch received lacerations to the right side of his face".

Oklahoma County Jail records indicate Finch, 26, was arrested Sunday for assault on a police officer, possession of marijuana and other charges. He was checked out by medical personnel before being taken to the Oklahoma County Jail.

Finch, who played at Oklahoma from 2010-13, was in the auto. After college he spent time on the practice squad with the New England Patriots, who picked him up as an undrafted free agent in 2014.

The Calgary Stampeders have issued a statement regarding Roy Finch following an alleged incident in Oklahoma over the weekend.
