FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Razorback basketball player Arlando Cook has been released after being arrested early Saturday morning.

21-year-old Cook is expected to face assault, disorderly conduct, and public intoxication charges.

Details of what led to the arrest were not immediately available. 

Razorback Basketball Coach Mike Anderson released a statement regarding the arrest:

“Once we gather all the information from last night, we will make a decision and handle this accordingly.  This is unacceptable behavior for someone in our program.  As Razorbacks, we hold our players to the highest standards.” 

Cook is scheduled for a court appearance on Wednesday.

The Arkansas forward also faced a public intoxication charge last October.
