Arrested Oklahoma State freshman guard Stevie Clark was arrested early Sunday on suspicion of outraging public decency, a spokesman for the Stillwater, Okla., jail said. Clark was arrested at 12:46 a.m. and has since been released from custody. Clark also was arrested on Jan. 1. An Edmond police spokesman said Clark was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over for a seatbelt violation. Police discovered marijuana in the vehicle and arrested Clark and the driver on possession of marijuana complaints. Clark, who is averaging 5.3 points and 2.7 assists per game for the Cowboys, already has missed five games this season for violating team rules. Oklahoma State did not immediately respond to an interview request. The Cowboys host Iowa State on Monday night.

Protested Cuba’s return to a tournament of the Caribbean’s top baseball teams after a half-century absence is being met with protests in Venezuela. About 200 people carrying signs such as “Cuba go home” gathered outside a hotel on Margarita Island where the Cuban team Villa Clara was resting following their debut in the five-nation tournament. Sunday’s protest was called by Venezuela’s opposition, which sees Raul Castro’s communist government as the architect of their own country’s socialist policies. Cuba hosted the inaugural Caribbean Series in 1949 and won of seven of the first 12 tournaments before withdrawing from the competition when former President Fidel Castro banned professional sports in 1960. Cuba returned this year despite concerns by Major League Baseball that its participation would violate a U.S. trade embargo against the island.
