LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- Arkansas regulators say a Little Rock
nightclub will face a $500 fine for allowing underage Heisman
Trophy runner-up Darren McFadden into the bar. McFadden and at least four others were at the bar when a fight broke out.
Alcoholic Beverage Control Director Michael Langley said Ernie
Biggs piano bar escaped a possible suspension of its liquor license
because bar owners admitted letting the 20-year-old tailback inside
on Jan. 10.
McFadden, who played for Arkansas and opted out of his final
year of college eligibility in January, was not arrested but was
handcuffed briefly. Police said a bouncer was hit in the face, but
a police report didn't say by whom.
