Razorback jailed

Posted By on Mon, Dec 10, 2007 at 2:00 PM

I'm now informed by the Fayetteville District Court that Charles Thomas, a Razorback basketball player, was jailed briefly today at the Washington County detention center. He had been sentenced to community service for an assault charge stemming from an altercation with a former  girl friend. The district court said he failed to appear for community service and an order was issued for him to serve his suspended 20-day sentence. Jailers have some leeway in determining how such sentences are served.

I briefly posted an item about this earlier, but took it down after some confusion about what exactly had transpired.

Contrary to what I was told by a court official, John Pelphrey said at a news conferenced later today that Thomas was in compliance with the community service order and his jail check-in was routine. At this point, I can't reconcile the statements.
