Arkansas linebacker Terrell Williams was suspended from the team indefinitely after his arrest Sunday morning for driving under the influence, ArkansasNews.com reported.
Williams, 21, was also charged with driving left of the center lane and violated the state's implied consent law.
Williams had seven tackles in the Razorbacks' 19-15 win against visiting Tulsa on Saturday.
"I am very disappointed in the decisions made by Terrell Williams," coach John L. Smith said in a statement released by the university. "He did not represent himself or the University of Arkansas in a manner we expect and has been suspended indefinitely. We have high expectations for the actions of everyone in our program on and off the field, and our student-athletes will be held accountable."
Williams was pulled over by Fayetteville, Ark., police before midnight on Saturday after officers saw him swerving in another lane and crossing the center line.
The arresting officer smelled alcohol on Williams, according to the report and he was asked to perform field sobriety tests. After results were consistent with "those of an intoxicated person," according to police, Williams was arrested just after midnight and taken to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.
Williams was uncooperative but not combative, according to the arrest report. He refused to take an alcohol test and was booked into the Washington County Detention Center at 1:34 a.m. He was released after posting bail. He must appear in court on Dec. 14.
Williams is fourth on the team with 52 tackles, but his loss further hampers a thin Arkansas linebacking corps. Freshmen Otha Peters is Williams' backup at middle linebacker.
Arkansas is at South Carolina on Saturday.
