DMac Involved in Little Rock Bar Brawl

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Arkansas Razorback and Heisman Trophy finalist Darren McFadden was involved in a brawl at a Little Rock bar early this morning, handcuffed by police, then released without charges.

McFadden and at least four others were at the Ernie Biggs piano bar in downtown Little Rock when a disturbance broke out shortly after midnight.  Police Lieutenant Terry Hastings said a bouncer was hit in the face as he was trying to get the group to leave.

Outside, McFadden was handcuffed by a police officer.  According to the police report, McFadden "was agitated and was provoking aggresive behaviour."  Hastings said McFadden was handcuffed briefly, then released.  No one was arrested.  The bouncer, Brant Hankins of North Little Rock, was advised that he could pursue charges.  The police report classified the incident as misdemeanor battery.

In the summer of 2006 in a fight outside another Little Rock club, McFadden severely injured his toe, but he was able to recover in time to play in the Razorbacks' season opener.

McFadden was the Heisman runner-up in 2006 and 2007 and holds Arkansas' career and single-season rushing records.  As a junior, he can turn pro this month.

McFadden is to be honored at the Little Rock Touchdown Club's annual banquet tonight.
