Federal investigators have subpoenaed at least one trustee of the University of Central Arkansas to appear before a federal grand jury on Tuesday.

The federal government has subpoenaed Rush Harding III of Little Rock and any UCA computers and/or electrical data storage used by former UCA President Lu Hardin and former UCA Senior Vice President Joe Darling.

Subpoenas go to witnesses in an investigation rather than targets, an assistant U.S. attorney said.

Hardin resigned in August 2008 after months of contention. Darling left UCA after allegations involving him and Little Rock advertising executive Ben Combs were revealed in a state audit.
