Arkansas Offensive Lineman Pleads Guilty to Theft Charge

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Arkansas offensive lineman Jason Peacock has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor theft charge and been sentenced to 10 days in jail.

Prosecutors say Peacock entered the plea Monday in Washington County Circuit Court, where he also was sentenced to a year of supervised probation.

Peacock was arrested March 16 on a felony theft charge for allegedly taking a fellow student's debit card and using it to buy $35 worth of gas.

Then-coach Bobby Petrino suspended the 6-4, 305-pound senior indefinitely. But Peacock was reinstated prior to Petrino's firing. Peacock was listed as a first-team lineman on the spring depth chart.

Peacock's lawyer and the university didn't immediately return phone messages seeking comment.

Prosecutors say Peacock is to report to jail within 30 days.
