Just when you thought it couldn’t get even crazier in the SEC, we hear of this blonde bombshell found to be riding on the back of the motorcycle that Bobby Petrino wrecked.
Recently, both Bobby Petrino and the University of Arkansas claimed that Petrino was alone when he wrecked his motorcycle. That, in fact, has found to be false. So, someone lied.
The girl on the back of the cycle turned out to be 25 year-old Jessica Dorrell, a former All-SEC volleyball player for the Hogs. Dorrell holds a job with the Razorback Foundation as an Assistant Director.
Petrino did mention there was “a lady there” who flagged down the car”. That “lady” turned out to be on his Harley Davidson.
Petrino is, of course, married to Becky Petrino. And I’m not so sure she took this too well.
Both Petrino and Dorrell left the scene of the crash together by a third party to where her car was parked nearby at a local intersection before Petrino was then sent to the hospital:
POST CRASH ACTIVITIES: OPERATOR PETRINO (V-1) AND PASSENGER DORRELL WERE NOT PRESENT AT THE ACCIDENT SCENE WHEN I ARRIVED. EMS WAS NOT NOTIFIED OF THE TRAFFIC ACCIDENT. OPERATOR PETRINO (V-1) AND PASSENGER DORRELL WERE TRANSPORTED FROM THE COLLISION SCENE TO THE INTERSECTION OF EAST HUNTSVILLE ROAD AND CROSSOVER ROAD IN FAYETTEVILLE … UPON ARRIVAL AT THE INTERSECTION OF EAST HUNTSVILLE ROAD AND CROSSOVER ROAD IN FAYETTEVILLE, PASSENGER DORRELL DEPARTED IN HER PERSONEL VEHICLE. OPERATOR OF (V-1) PETRINO WAS TRANSPORTED TO PHYSICIAN SPECIALTY HOSPITAL BY ASP CAPTAIN
LANCE KING IN HIS ASP VEHICLE.
The biggest thing you do not do in today’s world is lie to the media or lie to your boss. I find it hard to believe the university would let Petrino have a press conference knowing there was more to the story. I have a gut feeling they did not know anything about the second passenger. Who knows what really happened, but it will come out eventually.
I’m not one who is quick to judge and I usually give the benefit of a doubt to anyone explaining their innocence, and I just hope there is no infidelity involved in this situation.
Arkansas has called a late night press conference by the athletic department to address the situation tonight at 10:45 PM ET.
