Report: Darren McFadden receives jail time after pleading guilty to drunk driving
The greatest Razorback in modern college football history was recently given jail time.
If you missed the news back in January of 2019, Darren McFadden was arrested for drunk driving and resisting arrest after allegedly being found asleep behind the wheel of his vehicle at a Whataburger drive-thru. When police arrived and attempted to wake McFadden up, he resisted arrest. McFadden was then arrested by police.
A year later, McFadden has been sentenced to four days in jail after pleading guilty to drunk driving according to TMZ Sports. McFadden pleaded guilty to drunk driving after negotiating a plea deal that dropped the resisting arrest charge in exchange for his guilty plea.
McFadden’s four-day sentence will be reduced to just three days as he’s been given credit for the one day he already served in jail following his initial arrest.
During his three seasons in Fayetteville, McFadden rushed for 4,590 yards and 41 touchdowns from 2005-2007. He finished as the Heisman Trophy runner-up twice during his college career before declaring early for the NFL.
The Oakland Raiders selected McFadden with the fourth overall selection in the 2008 NFL Draft. The former Razorback standout played 10 years in the NFL and rushed for 5,421 yards and 28 touchdowns during his time in the league.
