FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -Arkansas backup linebacker Freddy Burton was sentenced Friday to an alcohol awareness class and must pay $230 in fines after pleading guilty to charges stemming from a drunken driving arrest.
A Fayetteville District Court judge also ordered Burton, 19, of Morrilton to pay $300 in court costs.
Burton previously pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of driving while intoxicated and careless driving during a July 28 arraignment hearing. He was arrested June 29 after University of Arkansas police say an officer saw the sophomore's vehicle crossed the center line.
Officers say Burton took a breathalyzer test and had a blood-alcohol level of 0.13. Arkansas' legal limit is 0.08.
Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino announced last week that Burton and wide receiver Marques Wade would each be suspended for the first two games of the season because of separate drunken driving arrests this summer.
Burton is one of six Razorbacks to face problems with the law this year.
Burton had 23 tackles and played on special teams last season under coach Houston Nutt.
