Former star Cowboys wrestler charged with sexual battery

STILLWATER, Okla. — Wednesday, an arrest warrant was issued for former Oklahoma State University (OSU) wrestler AJ Ferrari, who, according to court records, is charged with sexual battery.

The Payne County District Court processed Ferrari’s bond at $25,000.

Earlier in July, an attorney for Ferrari stated, “It is unfortunate that a student athlete can become a target, primarily because of their status as an elite athlete. AJ is cooperating with law enforcement and is confident the truth will come out.”

On July 13, OSU wrestling announced that Ferrari was no longer part of their program. The same day, Ferrari’s attorney said, “[Ferrari] appreciated his time at Oklahoma State, but he and the University mutually agreed a change was appropriate.”
