As if the weekend was not already sour enough for Arkansas. A day after getting blown away by rival LSU on the road, backup quarterback Cole Kelley was arrested early Sunday morning for reckless driving and driving while intoxicated.
A report from KATV in Little Rock says Kelley has a hearing scheduled for November 13 and December 15. The 20-year old was booked at 8:47 AM in Fayetteville. Bond was set at $935. His status with the program, for now, has not been changed.
“I was informed early this morning of an incident involving Cole Kelley,” a statement from Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema said. “We are gathering all information from the proper authorities and will make a determination upon review of that information.”
Kelley played in Arkansas’ 33-10 loss at LSU on Saturday, completing three of 10 pass attempts for 36 yards with an interception in relief of Austin Allen. Kelley had started three games for the Razorbacks this season prior to the LSU game, filling in for an injured Allen.
