FAYETTEVILLE, AR - Three Arkansas football players, including wide receivers Marquel Wade and Maudrecus Humphrey, bonded out of jail Sunday afternoon after they were arrested and charged with burglarizing dorm rooms.

University of Arkansas police arrested Wade, Humphrey and tight end Andrew Peterson on Saturday after looking at security video in which the players allegedly were walking into rooms where items, such as computers and textbooks, had been taken.

An arrest report says witnesses also identified the players. Some of the stolen items were recovered from a bookstore near campus, and the report says a store clerk identified the three as regularly selling used items.

Records from the Washington County Jail indicate the players have a court hearing on Monday. The records do not indicate whether they have attorneys.

Statement from Head Coach John L. Smith

"Marquel Wade, Maudrecus Humphrey and Andrew Peterson have been suspended indefinitely. We have high standards for our student-athletes and I expect them to conduct themselves appropriately. Poor conduct and misbehavior will not be tolerated and is not what we expect from the University of Arkansas football program."
