Arkansas defensive lineman Tevin Beanum had his wheels taken away from him by head coach Bret Bielema after Beanum was arrested for suspicion of driving while under the influence.
Bielema consulted Beanum’s mom before pulling the plug on pleasure driving.
In order to return to the Razorbacks in the wake of his arrest, Beanum will have to fulfill certain university requirements. He will also have to follow Bielema’s rules.
“For instance, I’ve taken away his car,” Bielema said. “It sounds simple. I think a lot of today’s problems can be solved by an old school way of thinking. So I picked up the phone and called his mom. We talked about different things. He has to go through the court system and obviously he’ll have ramifications. But I’ve basically banned the use of his car for any time other than when he’s coming over here or going to academics. His car is to remain parked.
“If he gets pulled over for running through a stoplight at 10:30 at night then he’s violated my rules and there’s going to be an even bigger consequence.”
