The Arkansas State Police are further investigating the motorcycle crash that involved Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino last Sunday. After news broke that Petrino was injured, additional details were later disclosed that he was riding with a female employee–one that he has been supposedly been involved with outside of his marriage.
Not only did Petrino fail to mention Jessica Dorrell's presence on the ride, and that the two of them had an inappropriate relationship, but authorities also want to know how State Police Captain Lance King wound up meeting Petrino after the crash at an intersection in Fayetteville, Ark. King provides security for Petrino during the season, and was the person who drove the coach to the hospital after the crash.
Petrino is now on administrative leave while associate head coach Traver Johnson spoke to reporters before the Razorbacks started their first spring practice on Friday.
Johnson said he's "overly excited and proud of football team. The leadership we have in the locker room is tremendous. Our main focus has been the football team, so nothing has changed in that regard."
Widely considered a dishonest and unethical figure, Petrino has had his fair share of controversial run-ins with players and personnel for years.
Lawyer Milloy, a former Atlanta Falcon, told the New York Times on Friday that Petrino's situation is "karma."
"Just because he knows Xs and Os, that doesn't mean he's a nice person," Milloy said.
