FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Authorities say Arkansas junior defensive end Austin Flynn was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated Tuesday morning.
Flynn, who transferred to the Razorbacks before last season from Los Angeles (Calif.) Harbor College, was stopped by Fayetteville police, who said he was speeding and then crossed the center line. According to a preliminary police report, Flynn's blood-alcohol level was 0.14 percent, nearly twice the legal limit.
Flynn becomes the first Arkansas player arrested since the program hired coach Bret Bielema in December. Bielema said through a spokesman that he is aware of the arrest and said he would handle the matter "swiftly and decisively."
The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Flynn had 10 tackles in 12 games last season for the Razorbacks.
