Calgary Stampeder arrested for allegedly assaulting Oklahoma policeman

(CFL Communications)

EDMOND, Okla. – Running back Roy Finch of the Calgary Stampeders has been arrested for allegedly assaulting an Oklahoma police officer.

Oklahoma County Jail records indicate Finch, 26, was arrested Sunday for assault on a police officer, possession of marijuana and other charges. Records indicate Finch remained in jail Monday but don’t show if he’s represented by a lawyer.

Finch was arrested after officers found him in a car that smelled of marijuana. Finch allegedly swung at officers and ran through an apartment complex before officers finally wrestled Finch to the ground and handcuffed him.

Finch signed a contract extension with Calgary in February prior to the start of CFL free agency.

The five-foot-seven, 165-pound Finch, a native of Niceville, Fla., was the CFL’s top special-teams player last year. Finch appeared in 13 games with Calgary in 2017, registering career highs in rushing yards (114), receiving yards (133) and punt return yards (1,200).

Finch added 696 kickoff return yards and returned three punts for TDs.
