FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — An Arkansas professor has been arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and public intoxication after screaming obscenities at Razorbacks coach Bret Bielema following a 39-20 loss to No. 1 Alabama.

Lawton Nalley, listed on the school's website as an associate professor of business and economics specializing in agriculture, was charged with the misdemeanors after screaming at Bielema as the coach was walking off the field Saturday night. Nalley, 37, was released from the Washington County Jail later that night.

A university spokesman said Monday morning that a statement on Nalley's arrest would "probably be forthcoming" later.

Arkansas (4-2, 0-2 Southeastern Conference) hosts Mississippi on Saturday.
