Arkansas’ Austin Flynn arrested on drunk-driving charge

Austin Flynn

The offseason arrest season in college football is in full swing, with Arkansas the latest school from the seven-time defending BCS championship conference to run into an off-field pothole.

Defensive end Austin Flynn was arrested by the Fayetteville Police Department and booked into the Washington County (Ark.) jail at 7:10 a.m. (?!?) local time this morning on a handful of charges.  Those charges included driving while intoxicated, careless driving and no proof of insurance.

The 22-year-old Flynn is currently being held in lieu of a $1,075 bond.  No details of what led to the arrest have been released.

During his first season with the Razorbacks in 2012, Flynn played in 12 games and was credited with 10 tackles.  Prior to his time at UA, Flynn had spent two seasons at a California junior college

    Can we start getting stories on the good things that college athletes do?

    I can’t help but note that a starter for Arkansas can’t raise a $1,075 bond yet four reserves from Alabama can raise bonds ranging from $5,000 to $65,000.

    Was he riding a motorcycle? Was there a volley-ball player with him? I wonder where the home-wrecking volley-ball player is now? She probably should contact former Prez to see if anything is open there…

    We can debate about which conference plays the tougher non-conference schedule. But, one thing’s for sure. Michigan can no longer label themselves as “The leaders and best.”

    That sobriquet now goes to the SEC. Five arrests already this week with the arrest of Arkansas’ Austin Flynn. And it’s only Wednesday.

    Footnote: You SEC grads can look up “sobriquet” in your Webster’s. That’s Noah, not Alex Karras’ TV son.
