Arkansas QB Cole Kelley arrested and charged with DWI, careless driving

13 November 2017

Arkansas Razorbacks quarterback Cole Kelley was arrested early Sunday by Fayetteville Police on charges of suspicion of DWI, careless driving and violation of the implied consent law. Bielema said he sent Kelley in because the offense was looking for a "spark" in hopes of rallying from what was a 26-10 deficit.

Allen, the incumbent senior starter, had not started a game since sustaining a shoulder injury on October 7 against SC.

Allen had completed 13 of 23 passes for 140 yards prior to being removed from the game.

The officer reports making contact with Kelley and says his eyes were red and watery.

"I was informed early this morning of an incident involving Cole Kelley".

Kelley, a 20-year-old from Lafayette (La.), was 3 of 10 passing for 36 yards and an interception in the Hogs' 33-10 loss at LSU on Saturday.

Kelley was asked to perform a sobriety test and because of a brace on his right foot he was not asked to walk and turn, according to the report.

Last week, Allen and Kelley were shown as co-starters at quarterback before the game against LSU. He has played in nine games this season, completing 87 of 151 passes for 1,038 yards, with eight touchdowns and four interceptions.

The Razorbacks' depth chart released Monday morning lists Kelley and sophomore Ty Storey as co-backups.
