PULLMAN — Washington State wide receiver Gabe Marks was arrested in Pullman at 2 a.m. on Saturday, according to the Pullman Police Department’s daily activity log. He was arrested for fourth-degree assault, second-degree criminal trespass, being a minor intoxicated in public and frequenting a tavern as a minor.
Sgt. Dan Dornes of the Pullman Police Department provided more details on the arrest.
Dornes said that Marks, a 19-year-old, was being detained by “a number of employees” outside Stubblefields bar in Pullman at 2:12 a.m. Saturday when Pullman Police Department officers responded to a call that an employee had been assaulted.
“He was in a dispute with another patron and they were asking him to leave the premises and they were escorting him to leave the premises,” Dornes said. “During that time he punched one of the employees, which was a 34-year-old male and so they held him there.”

According to Dornes, Marks was “heavily intoxicated.” He was arrested for the assault as well as trespassing and it was discovered that he was a minor, leading to additional charges.
Dornes said that Marks did not spend any time in jail because all four charges are misdemeanors. Instead he was issued a formal citation. He has not yet received a court date. Marks later apologized via Twitter.
Last year, Marks was cited for being a minor in possession.
Marks had 74 catches for 807 yards and seven touchdowns last season. He led the Cougars in all three categories.
