Former University of Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett was arrested Tuesday evening in Springdale on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, according to Lt. Jeff Taylor of the Springdale Police Department.
The call came in on a two-vehicle accident near the intersection of New Hope Road and Arkansas 112 near Arvest Ballpark at 6:23 p.m., and Mallett was arrested at 6:56 p.m., Taylor told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
Mallett, 31, was taken to the Springdale jail and his bond was set at $800, Taylor said.
Mallett led the Razorbacks to an 18-8 record in his two seasons as a starter in 2009-10. A third-round draft choice with the No. 74 pick of the 2011 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots, Mallett played three seasons as the backup to Tom Brady with the Patriots.
He also played two years for the Houston Texans and three seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, ending in 2017.
Mallett had been a visitor at numerous Razorback football practices in recent months.
