Arkansas' terrible season got a little bit worse early Sunday morning when redshirt-freshman quarterback Cole Kelley was arrested on suspicion of careless driving and driving while intoxicated.
Head Coach Bret Bielema released a statement saying, "I was informed early this morning of an incident involving Coley Kelley".
Washington County (Arkansas) online records show Kelley was booked into the Washington County Detention Center at 8:47 a.m.
Around 4 a.m., Fayetteville police saw a black Toyota Tundra heading west on Wedington and Steamboat where the passenger side tires hit the curb, and a traffic stop was made at Wedington and Colorado. His bond was set at $935, which he posted, and he was released at 11: 46 a.m.
Kelley failed the field sobriety tests and declined providing the sample for a portable breath test.
Kelley was wearing a medical brace due to a turf toe injury on his right foot and was not asked to perform other parts of the standard field test. He redshirted that season, but has saw action in nine games this year, completing 87 of 151 for 1,038 yards and eight touchdowns to four interceptions.
Kelley played in the fourth quarter in Arkansas' 33-10 loss to LSU on Saturday.
Kelley was rated a four-star recruit by ESPN.
