TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A spokesman for the state narcotics bureau
said agents gave no special treatment to former Oklahoma State head
basketball coach Sean Sutton after he admitted in August to being
addicted to pain medications.
Sutton was arrested Thursday, accused of illegally obtaining
prescription drugs from two women he met in a drug rehabilitation
Mark Woodward, a spokesman for the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics
and Dangerous Drugs, said Sutton wasn't arrested or charged before
then because investigators were collecting evidence and building a
case against him. Woodward said authorities were also looking for
others who may have been involved in the case.
