Beard, Williams and Thomas were all arrested and booked into the Washington County jail on Wednesday afternoon following a string of alleged transactions with counterfeit cash on Friday and Saturday. Arkansas coach Mike Anderson did not return text messages or phone calls from ESPN.com seeking comment.
According to the preliminary reports on the incident, the three players were "very identifiable from their tattoos, build, and general appearance" on videos that showed counterfeit $20 bills being used to purchase miscellaneous items, including "tobacco products," at various locations in Fayetteville.
