Report: Arkansas baseball player arrested after series sweep against Florida
Arkansas outfielder Braydon Ray Webb is facing a public intoxication arrest following an early-Sunday morning incident at a Fayetteville hot dog stand.
Webb was arrested just after 2:16 a.m. on Sunday at the intersection of Dickson Street and West Avenue, according to an arrest report from the Fayetteville Police Department and a report from Whole Hog Sports.
The police report said Webb cut in line at a hot dog stand that is located at the intersection, and was refused service by the hot dog stand worker, Cody Yancey. He then became upset, and police said Webb then pushed a table toward Yancey, and grabbed his mobile credit card reader and slammed it to the ground, which caused it to break.
Yancey then struck Webb which caused him to fall, and Yancey held Webb from behind while he attempted to hit Yancey with his elbows. When officers arrived on the scene, they noted Webb had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and blood on the right side of his face.
“We are aware of the incident involving Braydon Webb and are gathering information from the proper authorities,” Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn said. “We will make a determination regarding his status once we have reviewed all of the information.”
Webb was released from the Washington County detention center just after 8:30 a.m. with a $200 bond.
Webb has largely split time in left field with Zack Gregory this season. He played in two of Arkansas’ three games against Florida in Fayetteville this weekend.
Arkansas clinched the SEC regular season title on Friday with a win over Florida, and will begin SEC Tournament play this week in Hoover, Alabama starting at 4:30 p.m. CT on Wednesday.
