LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino says the
arrest of his son on DWI and drug charges is a family and legal
matter and doesn't concern the Razorback football team. Police in the southern Indiana city of Huntingburg said 23-year-old Dominic R. Petrino of Fayetteville was arrested at 12:06 a.m. Monday.

He was charged with driving while intoxicated, possession of marijuana, illegal possession of prescription drugs and possession of paraphernalia. The coach said in a message to The Associated Press that he and his wife won't comment further about the incident.

A police report says the younger Petrino was stopped after weaving off a roadway. Police say a blood test showed the presence
of marijuana and prescription opiates.

He was released on $1,000 bond later Monday.
