According to a Arkansas State Police report, Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino wasn’t alone when he wrecked his Harley Davidson last Sunday and his wife wasn’t the passenger. 25-year-old student athletic coordinator, Jessica Dorrell, was riding on the back of Petrino’s hog before he wrecked. The blonde bombshell, who is engaged to be married to a Josh Morgan on June 9, reportedly flagged down a motorist to assist the injured Petrino, eventually both getting in the motorist’s car to go to the hospital.
This is where things get even sketchier.
Instead of going directly to the hospital, Dorrell and Petrino have the motorist take them to Dorrell’s car at an intersection in Fayettville, Ark.. Dorrell hops in her car and leaves while her injured boss meets with a state trooper, who eventually takes him to the hospital.
On Sunday, Arkansas released a statement saying “Coach Petrino was involved in a motorcycle accident on Sunday evening that involved no other individuals.”
Either Petrino lied to the public relations department or they both made a terrible decision to attempt a coverup. In 2012, you have a better chance of hitting the Mega Millions lottery than covering up a motorcycle accident involving a premier college football coach and woman other than his wife.
Get your popcorn ready, this one is going to be fun to watch.
No word yet whether the June 9th wedding is still on. Feel for ya, Josh.
