Oklahoma State University redshirt sophomore defensive end Cole Walterscheid got tangled up with the OSU Police Department early Sunday morning after a police officer noticed him passed out on top of a Jimmy John's delivery driver car topper, according to OColly.com.

OColly.com further reports on what unfolded when Walterscheid began to approach the officer's vehicle:

When Walterscheid got to the car, the officer advised him to sit down, but Walterscheid then reportedly tried to open the passenger side front door of the officer's vehicle. Walterscheid sat down the next time he was told to, according to the affidavit.

When asked what he was doing, Walterscheid reportedly told the officer he was walking home and that he got the car topper “at work.” The officer asked Walterscheid whether he worked at Jimmy John's, and Walterscheid replied, “No, that's not from Jimmy John's,” according to the affidavit.

Eventually, Walterscheid, who has recorded 20 tackles and two sacks this season, admitted he took the sign from “Jimmy John's on the strip” and was arrested and charged with public intoxication.

Sandwich-maker Jimmy John's probably would prefer that intoxicated students refrain from damaging or sleeping on their their signs, but this instance did provide for a nice joke (and advertising opportunity):
