MIAMI, Okla. (AP) _ Three Arkansas men, including two who are members of the Northeastern Oklahoma A-and-M rodeo team, are charged with stealing cattle.

Rodeo team members Jake Pinalto of Lincoln, Arkansas, and David Walker of Springdale, Arkansas, are accused with David Fox of Huntsville, Arkansas, of stealing the cattle from a rancher and a teammate.

Ottawa County Sheriff Dennis King says the three have admitted stealing ten head of cattle near Miami (MY-AM'-uh). King says the cattle were stolen in late October and sold in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.

The three are due in Ottawa County District Court next week for arraignment.
