Arkansas linebacker Tyler Gilbert has been arrested on a charge of aggravated burglary and theft of property

According to a report by the Fayetteville Police Department, Gilbert, Jesse Booker and Ryan Graves late last Thursday evening kicked down the apartment door belonging to a fraternity brother of Booker's and proceeded to take items out of the residence.

The victim, Mbato Nkwocha, also told police that Booker had struck him in the right cheek with a crowbar.

Police took into evidence a DVD produced by Nkwocha's roommate containing partial video footage of the dispute taken from a cellphone camera. Police say they could hear what sounded like a physical altercation, but were unable to see anything.

Items listed as stolen include a purple and gold Omega Psi Phi banner, camouflage military clothing, a plastic purple and gold "Jason" hockey mask, two dog collars and and four $20 bills.

Acting head coach Taver Johnson said through a spokesman that Gilbert has been "suspended indefinitely."

Gilbert was arrested and booked at 11:19 a.m. on Tuesday.
