The Razorbacks’ senior was reportedly cited for shoplifting.
Jaylen Barford, one of the best scorers in the SEC, was reportedly cited for shoplifting.
The Arkansas senior guard was reportedly cited by police outside a Walmart on Saturday evening in Fayetteville, Ark.
Barford was reportedly not taken into custody. He was given a citation and let go. It’s unclear what he was allegedly trying to shoplift.
The 6-foot-3, 202-pound guard is averaging 20.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game for the Razorbacks so far this season. He was a second-team preseason All-SEC team player heading into the 2017-18 season.
Arkansas has yet to comment.
