Starting Razorbacks lineman arrested on felony theft charge
Earlier this week Arkansas lost a starting linebacker for at least the spring due to injury. A couple of days later, they have lost a starter on the other side of the ball, albeit for an entirely different reason.
According to Matt Jones of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, offensive tackle Jason Peacock was arrested Friday and hit with one charge of felony theft of property. No details of what led to the arrest or the charge have been released.
A court date for Peacock, who was being held in the county jail on a $2,500 bond, has been set for April 16.
Head coach Bobby Petrino is aware of the arrest and said late last night that Peacock has been suspended indefinitely.
