Arkansas LB faces DWI, two other driving charges

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas reserve linebacker Matt
Stoltz faces a driving-while-intoxicated charge after he was
arrested and then released on bond, according to police.

In addition to the DWI charge, the 19-year-old Stoltz faces a
charge of careless and prohibited driving. Both charges are
misdemeanors.

Arkansas coach Houston Nutt declined to comment.

Police reports say Stoltz was stopped at 3:08 a.m. Friday after
officers observed careless driving. According to the reports,
Stoltz failed field sobriety tests and later registered a
blood-alcohol level of 0.18 percent. Arkansas law defines a driver
as drunk with a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent or greater.

Stoltz, a sophomore, transferred to Arkansas from LSU last
spring and did not play for the Razorbacks this season.
