Here is a short article from last June from the Dallas Morning News as they reported the incident...
2006: Was charged with disorderly conduct while attending Garden City Community College.
2008: Loadholt was arrested on Saturday, June 22, on suspicion of driving under the influence and transporting an open container of beer. According to Norman Police, Loadholt was taken into custody by Oklahoma Highway Patrol at 2:35 a.m. in the vicinity of Interstate 35 and West Main Street in Norman. Kevin Finlay of the Cleveland Country District Attorney's Office reportedly said DUI and open container misdemeanor charges had been filed. Finlay confirmed that if convicted, Loadholt could face a fine of up to $1,000 and a jail sentence of between 10 days and a year for the DUI, and a $500 fine and/or a six-month sentence for the open container charge. The 22-year-old starting left tackle appeared in Cleveland County Court on July 8. Sooner head coach Bob Stoops suspended Loadholt for the 2008 season opener vs. Chattanooga for his team rules violation.
I can't find anything regarding how his court appearance turned out, but two arrests means a big NO from me, and I can't help but wonder if this is a Rams regime that now feels one arrest results in a big NO from them. The fact that Loadholt has shown poor decision making off the field on two separate occasions suggests a pattern or trend in his behavior rather than one mistake that he may have learned from. Maybe he has turned the corner, but someone else can take the risk and find out.
NORMAN, Okla. – Oklahoma offensive lineman Phil Loadholt faces a July court hearing on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and transporting an open container.
Loadholt, the Sooners' 6-foot-8, 350-pound starting left tackle, was pulled over at 2:35 a.m. Saturday after a state trooper saw his white Chevy Impala cross the center line and run onto the shoulder on Interstate 35 in Norman, according to an affidavit filed inCleveland County District Court.
The trooper reported in his affidavit that Loadholt, 22, had a blood-alcohol content of 0.15 percent – or nearly twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent – on two separate tests. The trooper's affidavit also indicated that open containers of Busch Light beer and malt liquor were on the center console ofLoadholt's car.
An attorney for Loadholt appeared in court Wednesday to enter an innocent plea on his client's behalf. His next court date was set for July 8. Loadholt was released on bond.
Loadholt started all 14 of the Sooners' games last season after transferring from Garden City (Kan.) Community College.
