SPRINGDALE (KFSM) – A court date has been reset for a former Razorback linebacker accused of driving while intoxicated last month, records show.

Robert W. Dacus, 28, of Springdale was stopped in Fayetteville on Aug. 17 while speeding on North College Avenue, driving a black Cadillac Escalade, a court document states.

Dacus was scheduled to appear in Fayetteville District Court on Sept. 8, but the court date has been reset to Oct. 22, records show.

The police officer who arrested Dacus used radar to confirm that he was driving 58 mph in a 45 mph zone, court documents show. When pulled over, Dacus said he was going back home to Springdale from Dickson Street and said he'd had “a few,” according to the document.

Dacus performed the standard field sobriety test “in a manner consistent with an intoxicated person,” the document states.

At the jail, he was given a breath test, registering 0.18, the document states.

Dacus was booked into the Washington County Detention Center and was released on bail a short time later, according to the Sheriff's Office website.

Dacus played for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2008, according to CBS Sports.
