KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee forward Kenny Hall has been arrested on a charge of driving with a suspended license.

A Knox County Sheriff's Office report said Kenneth Michael McElrath was arrested Tuesday morning. Tennessee athletic department spokesman Tom Satkowiak confirmed that the person was Hall. Satkowiak says McElrath is the last name of Hall's father, but that Hall goes by his mother's last name.

According to the arrest report, Hall was stopped at 5:05 a.m. for a speeding violation after he was clocked driving 70 mph in a 55-mph zone. A records check showed his driver's license was suspended for failure to satisfy and failure to appear. He was released on $500 bond.

Satkowiak says "the administration and coaching staff are aware of the situation, and it is being addressed internally."
