LITTLE ROCK, AR - A nearly nine page report from Arkansas State Police details ASP Captain Lance King's recollection of the chain of events following Bobby Petrino's accident.
Based on what King told his supervisors, Arkansas State Police say King did not violate any ASP policies or state laws.
King, a ASP football escort, detailed the chain of events shortly after Razorback Coach Bobby Petrino and companion Jessica Dorrell crashed a motorcycle April 1 in the report released Monday afternoon.
King got a call around 6:30 on April 1 from another state trooper telling him Petrino's bike wrecked on Highway 16. King says he then called Petrino and left a voice mail offering help.
"On my cell phone I had a call from Lance King, so we set up a place to meet," said Petrino at a press conference last week.
Instead of waiting for an ambulance, Petrino and Dorrell had a passerby drop them off in Fayetteville, where Dorrell left in her own car and Petrino had King drive him to the hospital.
Captain King says Petrino could hardly speak, but kept saying he thought he had a broken neck.
Last Tuesday, Petrino denied having a passenger on his motorcycle, but he did mention a woman. Now we know King received a call back from an "unidentified female" after initially calling Petrino.
The woman called again as King pulled up to the parking lot.
King says before he left for the hospital, he gave Dorrell his cell number and told her to call "tomorrow" to set up an interview with state police. King says he had never seen the woman in his life.
He also details a phone conversation with Petrino the day after the accident where Petrino asked if passenger information is required. King told him police would need names and addresses.
Since another trooper was going to interview Petrino shortly, King did not ask him for the woman's name and the coach didn't ask him to keep her name off the report.
At the end of the report, King adds "at no time was there any indication that Coach Petrino had been drinking or was intoxicated. He did not smell of alcoholic beverages."
Captain King started working security for the Razorbacks during the 2003 football season. He's worked pre-game and game-day assignments with coach Petrino for the past two seasons, but says he's never met with Petrino socially.
AR State Police tell FOX16 that U of A Athletic Director Jeff Long received a copy of the report Monday afternoon, and Long can use it as he sees fit in his review of Petrino.
