CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) -- Oregon State cornerback Jordan Poyer was arrested in connection with trespassing at a nightclub near campus over the weekend.
Poyer, 21, considered an NFLprospect, is scheduled to appear on second-degree trespassing charge in Benton County Circuit Court on June 7.
Police say Poyer was barred from the Impulse Bar & Grill earlier this year, but managed to get into the club by using an alternate entrance. He was detained by Impulse security before police arrived early Saturday.
Poyer posted on Twitter Tuesday that the incident was a big misunderstanding and got blown out of proportion.

2011: Jordan is one of the top athletes on the team ... excels as the team's kick and punt returner ... legitimate postseason honors candidate ... briefly played baseball last spring as an outfielder, appearing in seven games and starting five - batted .250 with three hits - did not pursue baseball due to time commitments with the sport and football.
