STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- Former Oklahoma State basketball coach Eddie Sutton was released from a Stillwater hospital Friday afternoon after being found unresponsive in his car Friday morning.

Sutton was taken to Stillwater Medical Center after being found unresponsive in his car outside a convenience store.

A statement from the hospital says Sutton was not under the influence of alcohol -- but had an adverse reaction to medication he was recently prescribed by his doctor.

Stillwater Police say a clerk at the On Cue convenience store called for an ambulance just after 9:30 AM and Sutton was "mostly unresponsive" when emergency personnel arrived.

Captain Randy Dickerson says Sutton was able to talk a little to police and paramedics.
