 LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -Heisman Trophy runner-up Darren McFadden was handcuffed by police and then released without charges after being involved in a ``pretty rowdy scene'' at a piano bar early Thursday.
Arkansas' All-American running back and at least four others were at the downtown bar when a disturbance broke out shortly after midnight, police Lt. Terry Hastings said. A bouncer was hit in the face as he was trying to get the group to leave, Hastings said. A police report did not specify who hit the bouncer.
``There was a whole bunch of people there,'' Hastings said. ``They were inside and it spilled out into the street.''
Outside, McFadden was handcuffed by a police officer ``because he was agitated and was provoking aggressive behavior inciting the incident,'' according to the police report.
``We handcuffed him for a few minutes because he was rowdy,'' Hastings said.
McFadden, who was the only person handcuffed, was released after he calmed down. Hastings said it was routine procedure to handcuff a person to gain control of a situation.
McFadden's mother, Mini Muhammad, said her son was trying to protect his younger brother, Daryl.
``He wasn't the one that was fighting. It was his little brother - someone had jumped on him,'' Muhammad said. ``He was agitated because his brother had a bloody nose.''
``Darren was not fighting - please make that be known,'' she added.
Hastings said bar employee Brant Hankins was advised that he could pursue charges against the person who hit him. 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 recovered in time to play in the Razorbacks' season opener.
McFadden, who also finished second in the 2006 Heisman voting, holds Arkansas' career and single-season rushing records. The junior has yet to decide whether he will forgo his senior year and enter the NFL draft.
McFadden was to be honored at the Little Rock Touchdown Club's annual banquet Thursday night.
