FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The son of Arkansas men's basketball coach Mike Anderson has been arrested again on suspicion of drunken driving.

Michael Anderson, 26, is a video coordinator for the Razorbacks. He was pulled over by Fayetteville police at 3:43 a.m. Sunday, hours after Arkansas' win over Mississippi State.

A police report says Anderson's blood-alcohol level was 0.10, above the 0.08 limit for driving. Police say he was randomly braking and had "horrible" balance during a test.

The arrest is Anderson's second alcohol-related arrest. He was also suspended while a reserve guard at Missouri in 2007.

His father says he is disappointed and hopes the younger Anderson will learn from the situation.
