Unpaid tickets show no favoritism. Many folks have been there, and they weren’t all football players at a high profile university. That’s where back Chanse Sylvie found himself in the early hours of Monday morning when the junior defensive back was arrested for multiple outstanding City of Norman traffic warrants after he was pulled over for speeding.
Following his arrest, Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley said that the situation with Sylvie was handled internally and that no further discipline would be required.
“No, he got a speeding ticket, he should have paid it sooner,” Riley said after practice on Wednesday after practice. “I mean, I wish he’d have paid it sooner, but no. I don’t know. I might make him go get me some water or something on game day.”
Leading up to Oklahoma’s opener against Houston on Sunday night, Sylvie had been competing with Brendan Radley-Hiles as Oklahoma starting nickelback. Although he didn’t start, he did play in the game and recorded one tackle.
