The University of Arkansas said this week that it was investigating an “incident” involving Razorback football players over last weekend.
In a written statement, the school said the players attended “an event” along with other students and that university police and the school’s Office of Student Standards and Conduct are looking into what happened. The university declined to comment further.

No arrests had been reported.
The university’s full statement is below.
The University of Arkansas Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has been made aware of an incident occurring this past weekend at an event. The event was attended by University of Arkansas students, including members of the football team. The incident is currently being reviewed by UAPD and the Office of Student Standards and Conduct. The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics will have no further comment until the completion of the review.
Putting College football players in that atmosphere is a recipe for disaster.
