FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas wide receiver Kane Whitehurst was arrested early Sunday morning for possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.

Whitehurst, a freshman who redshirted last year for the Razorbacks, was arrested by university police and booked into the Washington County Detention Center with a bond of $1,320. He has a court date set for Monday.

Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino says through a spokesman that he is aware of the situation and that it will be handled appropriately.

Whitehurst's arrest is the second for the Razorbacks in the last two weeks, following offensive lineman Jason Peacock's arrest in March for using a stolen debit card to buy approximately $35 worth of gas.
