An Oklahoma State University baseball player was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving around 2:40 a.m. Tuesday.

Payne County sheriff’s deputy Adam Jarvis arrested Trey Whaley, 22, at the intersection of 6th Street and Monroe Avenue. Whaley was driving a 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe and was pulled over for not having his headlight or taillights on, Payne County sheriff’s Capt. Kevin Woodward said.

Jarvis gave Whaley a breath test, which showed a blood alcohol concentration of .12, he said. Whaley also failed field sobriety tests at the scene, Woodward said.

Whaley appeared in court Friday and was released on a personal recognizance bond. He will appear in court on Feb. 12.

OSU media relations spokesman Wade McWhorter released a statement Friday afternoon about Whaley's arrest.

"Coach Holliday is aware of the situation and is gathering information, and he will determine a course of action when he feels the process has been completed," he said.

Whaley, a senior from Lubbock, Texas, was named an All Big-12 honorable mention outfielder for the 2012 season. He is also OSU’s second-leading hitter, with a .299 average.
