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.
