Razorback Football Player Arrested

FAYETTEVILLE, AR - Arkansas running back Michael Smith was arrested yesterday on suspicion of using a stolen credit card. 

Smith was arrested on felony charges of forgery and theft by receiving.  Coach Houston Nutt suspended him indefinitely and says the sophomore will not play next weekend when the Razorbacks host North Texas.

Smith, whose fumble in the second quarter was a key play in the Razorbacks' 42-29 loss to Kentucky Saturday night, was expected to remain in jail overnight.  A court date was to be set today.

According to a police report, another person was arrested for fraudulent use of a credit card, and Smith is suspected of using the same stolen card.  Smith said the other person owned him money for gas and gave him the credit card to use.

According to the report, Smith used the card for three transactions worth a total of $96.34.
