Arkansas coach Bret Bielema issued a statement on defensive end Austin Flynn's arrest Wednesday night. Flynn was arrested Wednesday morning for driving while intoxicated in Fayetteville.
Flynn is the first Arkansas player arrested since Bielema's arrival on Dec. 4.
Below is the full statement:
“I am aware of the situation involving Austin Flynn and I am disappointed in his actions,” Bielema said in a statement issued through an athletic department spokesperson. “I will review the matter and it will be handled swiftly and decisively. Our student-athletes will understand there will be discipline in our program and we will learn the responsibility they have in representing Arkansas in the right way. We will hold our student-athletes accountable for their actions at all times and character and integrity will always be a priority. Within our program we will learn just as many life lessons through our failures as we will through our success."
