Sutton was arrested Thursday night when he arrived to pick up a shipment of painkillers under another person's name, Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs spokesman Mark Woodward sais.

Sutton was arrested on complaints of attempting to possess a controlled dangerous substance and use of a communications device to facilitate a felony, Woodward said Friday.

The package Sutton picked up contained about 40 pills, including the muscle relaxer clonazepam, two forms of the stimulant Adderall and a fourth, unidentified substance, Woodward says.
