A former linebacker for the Arkansas Razorbacks was arrested for a DWI over the weekend. At around 3 am on Sunday, August 17, 2014, Robert W. Dacus, 28, was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated in Springdale, Arkansas.

A resident of Springdale, Arkansas, Dacus, 28, was driving a black Cadillac Escalade on North College Avenue going northbound. Dacus was speeding, as police radar clocked him at driving 58 mph in a 45 mph zone.

Police pulled him over and Dacus stated he was coming from Dickson Street where he admitted to having “a few”. According to the police report, Dacus was asked to perform a field sobriety test in which he completed the exam “in a manner consistent with an intoxicated person.”

The report also stated that Dacus had bloodshot and watery eyes.

Dacus was arrested and taken to the Washington County Detention Center. While in jail, he was given a blood alcohol concentration test where his BAC measured at .18 percent. The legal limit in Arkansas is .08 percent.

Dacus was later released from jail at around 10 am on Sunday. His court date is set for September 8. He is being charged with DWI and speeding.

In addition to playing for the Arkansas Razorbacks, Dacus also played for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2008.

If convicted of a DWI, Dacus could face potential jail time or probation. He may have to pay some pretty expensive fines and face a driver’s license suspension. Additionally, he may be required to perform community service or attend alcohol education classes.
