FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -Arkansas linebacker Khiry Battle has been dismissed from the team after a weekend arrest on a charge of driving under the influence.
Coach Bobby Petrino announced Battle's dismissal Monday, saying only that he'd violated team rules.
The 20-year-old Battle was arrested early Sunday on a charge of misdemeanor DUI. Police say Battle failed a field sobriety test and refused to take a breath alcohol test, leading to a charge of violating the state's implied consent law.
On May 6, Battle was arrested after an incident in which a background check revealed he had an arrest warrant for failure to appear for a careless driving ticket.
Battle played in 10 games last season as a freshman and made five tackles.
