West Fork police chief Michael Nelson told The Associated Press the three were arrested after a car, which was being driven by 20-year-old Stephen Sprick of West Fork, was observed moving erratically.
The officer pulled the car over in a local park where Sprick was arrested and cited for driving under the influence. Hicks and an unnamed passenger were arrested and cited for public intoxication.
Nelson didn't return messages to The Morning News on Wednesday.
Hicks, 21, was booked into the Washington County Detention Center at 11:24 a.m. and released at 12:11 p.m. Sprick and the unnamed passenger also were booked into the Washington County Detention Center and released.
All three are scheduled to appear in West Fork District Court on April 26.
More details on Hicks' arrest will be available as early as today, when a police report is filed by the arresting officer. Earlier this week, a spokesperson said the officer has been off since the incident occurred and is scheduled to return today.
Hicks played in 10 games in 2004 despite sustaining a dislocated shoulder in the opener. He started eight times and caught 8 passes for 98 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Hicks had off-season surgery to correct the dislocated shoulder, but was injured during Arkansas' first scrimmage of the spring. He was held out of last Saturday's Red and White scrimmage in Razorback Stadium.
Arkansas coach Houston Nutt hasn't been unavailable for comment about Hicks' arrest. Nutt has been in Little Rock where his father, Houston Nutt Sr., passed away Wednesday afternoon after suffering a stroke earlier this week.
Hicks' arrest comes shortly after teammate Clarke Moore was arrested and cited for driving under the influence in Farmington on March 12.
