STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Stillwater police have arrested Oklahoma State basketball player Obi Muonelo on a misdemeanor complaint of being inside a bar while under 21.

Stillwater Police Sergeant Paul Bostick says the 19-year-old Muonelo was arrested just before 1 a-m yesterday inside The Dirty Dog Tavern.

Bostick says the bar's manager had complained to police that underage basketball players, quote, ``have repeatedly been trying to sneak into his bar with the help of some of the older players.''

Bostick says that when he made contact with Muonelo in the bar, Muonelo did not have identification and admitted he was 19.

Muonelo, a 6-foot-5 guard from Edmond, was booked into the Stillwater jail and released on bond. The police have forwarded information on the arrest to the city attorney's office.

O-S-U coach Sean Sutton says Muonelo used poor judgment and that coaches will handle the situation internally.
