Arkansas QB Arrested for Suspicion of DWI

The 33-10 LSU Tigers victory over the Razorbacks on Saturday must’ve been hard for 20 year old University of Arkansas Quarter Back Cole Kelly.  It seems his bad weekend got worse when he returned to the Natural State, as he was arrested around 4 am on Sunday for suspicion of DWI and reckless driving in Fayetteville, Arkanasas.  According to, the arresting officer claimed he saw Kelly’s black Tundra strike and briefly hop up on the curb.  When he was pulled over, Fayetteville police say that Cole’s eyes were red and watery.  He failed a field sobriety test, then refused to take a breathalyzer test.  He was arrested and taken to the Washington County Detention Center where he as booked at about 8:30 that morning.  Head Coach Bret Bielema was informed and is looking in to the situation.

Kelly has been a rising star in the Razorback program, even as a redshirt freshman.  So far this year, he has the distinction of being the first Arkansas freshman starting quarterback to win against a Southeastern Conference opponent on the road since 2006 with the 38-37 win over Ole Miss – and that’s just the top of a long list of impressive accomplishments.  Let’s hope this guy screws his head on straight and takes advantage of his opportunities, instead of wrecking his chances of a prosperous future **cough** Johnny Manziel **Cough**.

Cole Kelly is due to appear in court on December 15th.
