Holy Heisman, Batman. In fact, a Hog named Batman comes to mind..
Fox 16 is reporting — you should gaze over at their headline links on our site from time to time if you aren’t doing so already — that Darren McFadden was involved in a Little Rock bar fracas (Ernie Biggs in the River Market) early this morning. What, classes haven’t resumed in Fayetteville? (A reader says that classes don’t resume this week; we’re checking to see if he’s still enrolled. He’s to receive an award at a Little Rock dinner tonight.) UPDATE: McFadden is not currently registered for the spring semester, which starts Jan. 14, according to the UA registrar’s office. The registration deadline is Jan. 18.
These handcuffs weren’t golden as NFL resume-builders.
Narrative from the police report on the jump.
I called Brant Hankins, the bar bouncer, for his version of events and to ask whether he’d decided to seek charges against anyone as a result of the incident. His response:
“I’m not going to speak about it at this time. Everything is still kind of up in the air. I may at some point.”
The Little Rock number listed on the police report for McFadden is a disconnected number.
UPDATE III: Fox 16 has some new details, one being that McFadden drove away early this morning in an Escalade. But it also has an interview with his mother Mini Muhammad, who said the event was being blown out of proportion, that the bouncer hit her son Bilal first and that McFadden wasn’t fighting, only trying to protect his family.
