Another Arkansas football player found himself in trouble this weekend.

Freshman punter Blake Johnson was cited by University of Arkansas police for public intoxication, minor in possession of alcohol and disorderly conduct early Saturday morning after he was spotted urinating on a light pole in a campus parking lot, according to arkansasnews.com.

Johnson is a former 3-star recruit and was set to be the Razorback’s reserve punter this season. The arrest is Arkansas’ second in two days as freshman tight end C.J. O’Grady was arrested on Friday and charged with driving while intoxicated, minor in possession, no tail light and no insurance, according to arkansasnews.com.

The news comes just a week before Arkansas is set to open up its season against UTEP on Sept. 5.
