Oregon State men’s basketball player Alfred Hollins was arrested early Sunday morning for giving false information to police.
Hollins, an 18-year-old freshman forward, was stopped at about 1:50 a.m. by a Benton County Sheriff’s Office deputy for driving the wrong way on Southwest Fourth Street. He was stopped near Southwest Sixth and Adams Avenue.
According to police, Hollins gave the deputy a false name and incorrect date of birth. He also didn’t have his driver’s license on him. Since the deputy couldn’t confirm his identity, he took Hollins to the Benton County Jail, where they confirmed his identity and booked and released him.
Hollins is expected to be in Oregon State’s rotation this season.
The Beavers have a Friday exhibition home game against Pacific and open the regular season Nov. 10 hosting Southern Utah.
