FAYETTEVILLE, AR -

(WMC-TV) - Prosecutors are looking into whether a University of Arkansas official ordered the destruction of documents to keep them from being released.

This announcement comes after a legislative audit revealed a $4 million deficit in the university's advancement division.

A former UA spokesperson told a legislative committee Chancellor G. David Gearhart ordered the destruction of those public documents.

Gearhart has denied these accusations.
