(Norman-AP) -- Two Oklahoma basketball players were arrested Thursday at their apartment on drug complaints.

Junior Jabahri Brown and red shirt freshman Matt Gipson were taken into custody about 10:15 by police who were serving outstanding traffic warrants.

Lieutenant Tom Easley says Gipson came to the door and was cooperative. Easley says officers then saw a substance believed to be marijuana and a device used to roll cigarettes.

Easley says Brown was booked into the Cleveland County Jail on complaints of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He's being held on $2,000 bond and Easley says charges are expected to be presented to the district attorney Friday.

Gipson was taken to Norman municipal court to meet his attorney and pay fines.
