Herschel Sims, the OSU running back who was dismissed from the team last week for violating team rules, has been formally charged in Payne County court with felony forgery.
Court records show Sims was charged with two counts of second-degree forgery Tuesday afternoon.
Oklahoma State head football coach Mike Gundy said last week that Sims had been dismissed from the team, but gave no details about why.
Sims is expected to be in court June 11th for arraignment.
Sims rushed for 242 yards and two touchdowns as a freshman last year, including an 81-yard scamper against Baylor and a one-yard plunge in the Cowboys' 70-28 blowout of Kansas.
His best game came against Texas Tech, when he rushed for 109 yards on 13 carries.
Despite being one of the top recruits in the 2011 signing class, Sims was expected to be the third string tailback behind Joseph Randle and Jeremy Smith this season.
Tulsa's Channel 8 will have more on this story as information becomes available.
