FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -Arkansas wide receiver Marques Wade faces a drunken driving charge after authorities said he nearly hit a police officer with his car late Saturday night.
A Fayetteville police report shows an officer stopped the sophomore from Ellenwood, Ga., after he sped through a parking lot and nearly slid into another officer. The report alleges Wade had bloodshot eyes and denied drinking, but said he had ``smoked some marijuana earlier in the day.''
Police said a breathalyzer test showed Wade had a blood-alcohol level of 0.11. Arkansas' legal limit is 0.08.
Wade also faces a misdemeanor careless driving charge. He was released from Washington County jail early Sunday morning after posting an $880 bond.
Wade told The Associated Press he had no comment Sunday about his arrest.
Wade is scheduled to appear Aug. 18 in Fayetteville District Court. He played only four games last year.
The incident marks the fifth arrest of a member of the Arkansas' football team this year.
