University of Arkansas Quarterback Cole Kelley was arrested by Fayetteville Police early Sunday morning (Nov 12) on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and careless driving. "It's a learning lesson that I hope he takes full advantage of".

Kelley is a 6-foot-7 268 redshirt-freshman. 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.

Kelley entered Saturday's game against the Tigers in the fourth quarter and completed three of 10 passes for 33 yards and an interception.

Kelley didn't start against LSU, but had started the previous four games in the place of injured senior Austin Allen. Storey played three times past year, in games against Texas State, Alcorn State and Auburn, completing one of four passes for three yards. Kelley's eyes were "red and watery", according to the report, and he performed two parts of the field sobriety test "in a manner consistent with intoxication".

Last week, Allen and Kelley were shown as co-starters at quarterback before the game against LSU. He has 1,038 passing yards, eight touchdowns and four interceptions this season.

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