FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas defensive end Antwain
Robinson will be required to perform community service as part of
punishment for being arrested earlier this month on a misdemeanor
Robinson, who was second on the team with 8.5 sacks and 14.5
tackles for loss last season, was arrested March 18 at a Dillard's
store in the Northwest Arkansas Mall at Fayetteville.
"I was very shocked and disappointed," Nutt said Monday as
players returned to the practice field after spring break. "He is
going to be punished severely inside this program. We are going to
make sure that he hopefully never makes that decision again. Every
day he is going to be punished and we'll see how things take."
Nutt said Robinson would be referred to Rodger Hunter, the
university's student life coordinator, who would work out a
schedule of community service for the athlete.
In practice Monday, Robinson didn't work out with the
first-string defense, and did extra conditioning drills after the
session. Nutt declined to say if Robinson would miss any playing
time in games next fall, saying "that's too far ahead."
Police say Robinson was accused of taking two shirts valued at a
total of $64.
