The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported yesterday that three players- wide receivers Marquel Wade and Maudrecus Humphrey and tight end Andrew Peterson- were charged with felony residential burglary; one count for Wade, nine for Humphrey and Peterson each. The trio swiped over $4,800 worth of cash, DVD’s, textbooks and other assorted items from university dorm rooms, starting on May 1, and concluding with their arrest yesterday.
After the news broke, the three were suspended indefinitely by interim head coach John L. Smith who released a statement, which said:
Marquel Wade, Maudrecus Humphrey and Andrew Peterson have been suspended indefinitely. We have high standards for our student-athletes and I expect them to conduct themselves appropriately. Poor conduct and misbehavior will not be tolerated and is not what we expect from the University of Arkansas football program.
Looks like the hits just keep on comin' in Hogland. I hate to see Bobby Humphrey's son get tangled up in all this, though.
