Investigations

A prosecutor in Little Rock said there will be no investigation of the Arkansas athletic director's long-distance calls if the school administration believes there has been no wrongdoing.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette said Sunday that Athletic Director Frank Broyles had made hundreds of calls to friends and relatives on the university's bill. Broyles has said that all but one call was business related.

"As long as the university administration considers these calls to be authorized and business related, then I see no crime and no victim of a crime," said Andrew Ziser, a district prosecutor. "This would explain why no complaint has been filed with any police agency."

School chancellor Dan Ferritor said that Broyles has assured him "that the calls were all in the line of business and that in his judgment, they were perfectly appropriate for his role as athletic director."
