Someone Set Arkansas QB Brandon Allen’s Car on Fire


They always point out the perks of playing quarterback at a major university. There’s the chance to gain national fame, make the NFL, have people worship your every move. There’s also the whole WAG situation, which some people find very appealing.

But there’s also some down sides to being in the limelight.

Like having someone burn your car.

The truck Razorback quarterback Brandon Allen drives was burned in what is being investigated as an arson case Monday morning (Aug. 25) at 3:59 a.m., police say.

The truck is a Chevy Avalanche, and the police said it was burned in the 1100 block of West Hendrix Street, according to police.

The truck was given to Allen by his father, and his golf clubs were inside when it burned, Allen said.

Fayetteville police are coordinating with the fire marshal in the investigation, according to officials.

Now, it’s too early to tell if Allen’s ride was targeted or the fire was a random act of violence.

Razorbacks coach Bret Bielema declined comment on the situation and said Allen wouldn’t be commenting either.

Nothing is going to being this poor Avalanche back, but it would be nice to know if there’s an Andre Rison-Lisa Lopes situation brewing in Fayetville.
