It was a terrible weekend for the Arkansas Razorbacks football program. Not only did they lose at home to Liberty, but two of their players were arrested afterwards, following a physical altercation with police.
Freshman defensive back Anthony Brown and junior DB Myles Slusher were reportedly involved in an incident with the Fayetteville Police Department at around 2 AM Sunday morning.
According to the court documents, Brown was standing in the middle of the street outside a pub near the school’s campus when officers told him to get on the sidewalk. Brown followed their orders at first, but when the cops came back around a second time, they found him in the middle of the street once again.
From there, the arresting officer claims that he grabbed Brown by the sleeve and tried walking him back to the sidewalk, but that’s when things went sideways.
That’s when things allegedly got physical … with the cop saying in the documents that Brown pushed him away — which forced him to take the 19-year-old to the ground and into custody.
“Brown engaged in fighting behavior,” the officer wrote, “congregated with two or more other people in a public place refusing to comply with a lawful order to disperse, and obstructed vehicular traffic in a public place.”
According to cops, while Brown was getting cuffed, Slusher — a junior defensive back — grabbed the arresting officer in order to try to pull him off of Brown, according to the docs.
Both men were eventually arrested and taken to the Washington County Detention Center. They were released later that morning and hit with disorderly conduct chargers.
Razorbacks’ head coach Sam Pittman said that the team was aware of the incident and were “in the process of gathering information from the proper authorities.”
At this point, it would be a surprised if either player suits up for another game this season.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
