Little Rock TV station KARK posted on its Web site Thursday that a new Cadillac Escalade is in Arkansas Razorback tailback Darren McFadden’s possession. A source claims McFadden was present at the car dealership when sports agent Mike Conley negotiated the deal. Conley was a nine-time Razorback NCAA long and triple jump champion lettering in track from 1984-1987.
KARK reports its source said the car was purchased and put in the name of Mini Muhammed, McFadden’s mother.
Arkansas sports information director Kevin Trainor said, " We are aware of the report and with any compliance issue we must actively work to review the situation. "
"That is 100 percent a lie. I would challenge anybody to say that I have ever been at a dealership with Darren McFadden, " Conley was quoted as saying by KARK’s Web site.
