It’s been a solid 24 hours since news surfaced regarding a college football getting slapped by the long arm of the law, so of course we’re due for another one.
According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Arkansas linebacker Ross Rasner was arrested very early Friday morning and charged with possession of a controlled substance and being a minor in possession of alcohol. Rasner was arrested by university police officers after being found in a parked car with what’s believed to be marijuana and a 3/4 full bottle of whiskey. No further details were available, including what brand of whiskey was involved.
As a result of the charges, Rasner will not play in Arkansas’ spring game Saturday afternoon.
The Democrat-Gazette notes that Rasner is the fifth Razorback facing charges in the past 10 months; three of those have been for possession of illegal substances.
The junior has played in 24 games during his two seasons with the Razorbacks.
