Trio Of Texas Longhorns Arrested, According To Report

A trio of Texas football players - Alex Okafor, Kenneth Vaccaro and Barrett Matthews - were arrested and charged with failure to obey a lawful order, according to a report.

The arrest stemmed from an incident at a downtown Austin night spot during which the three Longhorns, in addition to a former Texas football player, refused to leave the establishment when asked. After they refused to do so, they were arrested and taken into custody.

Further details of the arrest remain unclear at this time.

Okafor started all 13 games as a junior last season at defensive end and was a first-team All Big 12 coaches selection. Vaccaro, a safety, also started every game last season and earned first-team All Big 12 accolades from the coaches as well. Matthews, a senior-to-be tight end, started three of the 13 games that he played in last season.
