FAYETTEVILLE, AR -- Arkansas backup linebacker Tyler Gilbert has been arrested and charged with aggravated residential burglary and theft of property for his role in an apartment break-in.
Fayetteville police arrested Gilbert Tuesday morning and booked him into the Washington County Detention Center. A court date is scheduled for Friday.
Arkansas assistant head coach Taver Johnson said through spokesman Zack Higbee that Gilbert has been suspended indefinitely for the incident last Friday.
A police report says that Gilbert and Arkansas students Jesse Booker and Ryan Graves kicked in the front door of the apartment of Mbato Nkwocha and took items from Nkwocha's room. The report valued the stolen property at $285.
