Oklahoma State sophomore safety Isaac Maselera pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia Friday afternoon in Payne County District Court.
Maselera, 19, was released on a personal-recognizance bond after appearing in court with attorney Willie Baker, according to court records. His next court date is 10:30 a.m. Aug. 20, the first day of OSU classes for the fall semester.
According to a police affidavit, a campus police officer responded to a call of a suspicious odor on June 25 and found a metal grinder that smelled like fresh marijuana in Maselera's dorm room.
Conviction of possession of drug paraphernalia carries a punishment of up to one year in jail, a fine of $1,000 or both.
Maselera, who is from Glenpool, played in nine games as a true freshman last season, primarily on special teams. He also recorded two tackles.
