Arkansas Player Arrested For DWI; Bret Bielema Limits His Car Use

After police arrested Arkansas defensive lineman Tevin Beanum for a DWI early Sunday morning, Razorbacks head coach Bret Bielema didn't completely boot Beanum from the team, but he did hand out an appropriate punishment: Beanum can't use his car except for classes or practice.

From the Arkansas News:

"For instance, I've taken away his car," Bielema said. "It sounds simple. I think a lot of today's problems can be solved by an old school way of thinking. So I picked up the phone and called his mom. We talked about different things. He has to go through the court system and obviously he'll have ramifications. But I've basically banned the use of his car for any time other than when he's coming over here or going to academics. His car is to remain parked. If he gets pulled over for running through a stoplight at 10:30 at night then he's violated my rules and there's going to be an even bigger consequence."


If Beanum follows the car policy and the university's requirements, Bielema says he'll fully return to the team.
