FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas defensive end Donnell Sanders was arrested early Saturday on misdemeanor charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct and third-degree assault.

Sanders, 19, was booked at 4:04 a.m. by the Washington County Sheriff's Office. He was released about two hours later after posting bond.

According to a preliminary police report, Sanders was seen leaning out of a car on Dickson Street and yelling at pedestrians. He then approached a man and shoved him down, the report said. The man was not injured.

According to the report, Sanders said he pushed the man because the man had "been in his space." The report said police detected the smell of alcohol from Sanders.

Sanders redshirted the 2006 season.
