A former Razorback and NFL running back made his first appearance in court Wednesday after his arrest a day earlier on drug and fleeing charges.
Cedric Cobbs, 32, is accused of attempting to obtain pills with a fraudulent prescription and then fleeing from police who tried to stop him.
On Wednesday, Cobbs appeared by video from the jail before Saline County District Court Judge Mike Robinson.
Cobbs didn't speak during the brief hearing, during which Robinson set a $10,000 signature bond and set an Oct. 22 court date.
The signature bond means Cobbs will be released and won't have to pay the amount unless he fails to appear for court.
"As long as you appear and stay out of trouble, you can remain out on bond," Robinson told him.
It wasn't clear when Cobbs would be discharged from the Saline County jail.
Cobbs' was arrested Tuesday after an employee at a Bryant pharmacy called authorities to say two men were using a forged prescription to try and obtain narcotic pain medication.
The two men fled in a vehicle toward Interstate 30 when police showed up. Authorities say they eventually pulled over and were arrested near Springhill Crossing.
Cobbs is charged with conspiracy to obtain drugs by fraud, fleeing and driving on a suspended driver’s license
Cobbs played for the Arkansas Razorbacks from 1999 to 2003, and later professionally for the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos.
