Two University of Oklahoma student-athletes are being accused of being involved in a police incident on Thursday night in Norman and have been suspended by the OU athletic department.
Their names weren’t released, but eventually two members of the football team were being pegged as person of interests.
“We are aware of a matter that may involve OU student-athletes and are monitoring the situation closely,” the OU athletic department told SI Sooners in a statement. “The student-athletes in question have been suspended pending the outcome of an ongoing investigation. We have no other information to share at this time.”
Sports Illustrated has the details:
“Last night (Thursday, April 15), somewhere just after 10 o’clock, we responded to a reported robbery in the 2600 block of Classen Boulevard,” Norman Police Department Capt. Barbour said.
