Arkansas Razorbacks walk-on linebacker Jake Yurachek, son of athletics director Hunter Yurachek, arrested for DWI

Jake Yurachek, an Arkansas football player and the son of athletics director Hunter Yurachek, was arrested by the University of Arkansas Police Department early Sunday morning and charged with driving while intoxicated, careless driving and possession of fraudulent/altered identification.

The 20-year-old linebacker was booked into the Washington County jail at 1:22 a.m., about seven hours after playing in Arkansas’ 33-21 win over Ole Miss, according to the online Washington County intake report. He was released at 3:44 a.m.

After beginning his career at Colorado and redshirting in 2018, Yurachek transferred to Arkansas to play for the school where his father was the AD.

As a walk-on, he appeared in four games last season, playing 16 special teams snaps and not recording any official statistics. Even though he still hasn’t played on defense, Yurachek has seen his role expand as a redshirt sophomore this season, appearing on multiple special teams units.

It is the first time since head coach Sam Pittman was hired last December that a football player has been arrested.
