Arkansas QB Kelley suspended indefinitely following arrest

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas coach Bret Bielema says quarterback Cole Kelley has been suspended indefinitely following his weekend arrest on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and won’t play on Saturday when the Razorbacks host No. 17 Mississippi State.

Kelley, a freshman who has seen considerable action this year with senior Austin Allen injured, was arrested early Sunday after an officer noticed the truck Kelley was driving hit the curb with both passenger-side tires.

The 20-year-old Kelley refused to take a breath test before being arrested, and he has court hearing scheduled for Wednesday.

Kelley started four games in a row for Arkansas (4-6, 1-5 Southeastern Conference) before Allen returned from a shoulder injury in a 33-10 loss to No. 21 LSU last week. Kelley has thrown eight touchdowns and four interceptions this season.
