Razorback Offensive Lineman Arrested
Razorback offensive tackle Jason Peacock, 23, is arrested for felony theft of property.
According to the Washington County Detention Center website, Peacock was booked Friday evening with a bond of $2,500. He has a court date set for Monday.
Through a spokesperson Bobby Petrino said, ”I am aware of the situation and he has been suspended indefinitely.”
Peacock was arrested by University of Arkansas Police. According to a police report a victim reported her wallet was taken from her purse on March 5, 2012 during a class in the Fine Arts Building. The wallet was later recovered, but her Arkansas I.D. and debit card were missing.
A check of her bank records showed a transaction the same day for $35.01 for gas at an EZ Mart. Police say the surveillance video from the gas station showed a Lincoln Town car where the card was used. The car belonged to Peacock. Investigators say Peacock is in the same class as the victim.
Police say Peacock admitted to taking the wallet, removing the items and using the credit cards during an interview. They say he still had the items and surrendered them to UAPD.
Peacock played in every game last season, starting the last nine.
According to the University of Arkansas website, Peacock payed two seasons in the junior college ranks before coming to Arkansas. He earned all-state honors from the Georgia Sportswriters Association for his performance at Baldwin High School. Peacock sided with the Razorbacks after also considering Arizona, Houston, Mississippi State, New Mexico and Utah. He enrolled at Arkansas in the spring of 2011.
