All will change when it goes from “suspect” to “charged”.
but you can’t tell me that they aren’t now getting special treatment due to being 0u football players - which by NCAA definition is a violation

The more I read about this story, the more classic OU/Norman OK it sounds. 5 star player for OU driving a new Lexus. Suspect in armed robbery just questioned and let go by Norman police. I will be further shocked when Lincoln Riley finds a way to make this all go away and keep these guys on the team and OU fans will tell us how this was all a big misunderstanding. Sht never changes down there.

Give them time, they had to wake Porky up from his nap to tell them how to correctly pervert the local legal system.

The timeline of an alleged robbery involving OU players
Carey Murdock • SoonerScoop

@CareyAMurdock
Archived police scanner audio reveals football players Trejan Bridges and Seth McGowan have become suspects in an alleged robbery that took place Thursday night in Norman at the Crimson Park apartment complex.

Dispatches from officers on the scene during the aftermath of the incident reveal an elongated search to find the whereabouts of both players, which forced the Norman Police Department to directly contact the OU athletics department for a current, known address for Bridges.

We start out just after 10pm Thursday night as the first call comes in after a robbery was reported at the Crimson Park apartment complex.

10:10pm: The officer reports her location and that she has answered the 911 call. The first words were not ideal knowing OU football players were potentially involved.

"Apparently they were armed with a gun."

The officer then offers up more reports from the victim who called the police.

"Suspect left on foot. Apparently (the victims) do know the suspect. The suspect left on foot but he knows they drive a new white Lexus. Possibly headed toward this vehicle."

10:11pm: Dispatch continues to ask the officer for a description of the suspect and the officer on scene continues to describe the victim as “excited” and relaying her difficulty in getting information quickly because of the victim’s emotional state.

10:13pm: The officer on scene has gathered a description of the suspects.

"Wearing a facemask, light skinned, wearing a white hoodie, with fatigues. All black clothing with braids."

And at the end, the officer says the thing you don’t want to hear as an OU fan.

"Possibly ball players from OU"

With officers eager to track down the suspects, they continue to push the officer for more information.

"If he knows the suspect can we get a name?"

10:17pm: The officer on the scene explains why she might be having such a tough time getting information from the victim.

"Be advised, he was pistol whipped but he's refusing EMS at this time”.

10:19pm: For the first time we hear a football player's name through the police scanner.

“We did find a Bridges in our system. A Trejan Bridges. 20 years old. Unknown if it's going to be the same guy or not but it kind of matches."

10:21pm: Dispatch lets all officers know they have posted officers at Headington Hall in case the suspects show up back at the dorms. A police presence is starting to envelop campus.

10:22pm: Dispatch releases a last known address for Bridges. Officers start heading that direction to investigate.

10:28pm: Officers realize the addresses for their suspects are not current. They ask for dispatch to contact the University for current addresses. Dispatch returns saying the University did not have current address information for the suspects.

It is probably at this point where OU athletics and Lincoln Riley find out the police are trying to track down one or more of their players. As one officer responds to the university’s inability to find the suspects.

"I'm sure the athletic department has a current address for the suspect."

10:43PM: An officer calls in to dispatch with the name Seth McGowan. It is the first time his name has been mentioned tonight. The officer says that the victim just started looking through the OU football roster and identified McGowan as one of the people who came to his apartment to rob him.

10:46pm: Another officer chimes in to dispatch

"I possibly have a second suspect. First name Seth. Last name is McGowan."

10:48pm: Officers have located Trejan Bridges’ car.

10:50pm: "Norman has Bridges in custody. Apparently he's the only one in the vehicle."

10:52pm: Officers are back reporting in about the robbery. They are with the victim detailing what was taken by the suspects.

"Also some designer shoes were stolen along with a camera."

Since officers had Bridges and his car in custody, they were hoping to match up the stolen goods with Bridges. So they were looking for descriptions.

"What did the designer shoes look like?"

You hear the victim answer in the background

"Balenciaga"

10:58pm: Officers appear to be arranging for Bridges’ car to be towed into the impound center.

“I’m not sure we’ll beat the wrecker over there or not, but can we make sure to have patrol follow the wrecker over to the NIC and let them in and that way we can say the vehicle wasn’t messed with in between?”

11:16pm: Officers now appear to be searching through Bridges’ car at the impound and are asking officers with the victim to verify more information about what was stolen. Which included marijuana.

"Did he know the flavor of the marijuana that was stolen? Or anything about it? Packaging? Etc."

And then comes the punchline of this story if there is one:

"It's called comfortably numb."

The officer continues searching through Bridges’ car.

"We've got marijuana in the car here called 'Oakland Huff or Puff'."

11:17pm: The focus turns back quickly to officers looking for another suspect. You can make an assumption this was McGowan, but no name is ever mentioned.

"One of the possible suspects has an address in Headington. But we are trying to figure out if they want to try to make contact with him via phone or whether we need to go up to his room."

11:28pm: Police are able verify the last time this suspect swiped his card to enter Headington was 8:30pm. They now know he’s likely not in the building.

From 11:28 to 12:36 there was no more mention of the robbery or the suspects or the investigation.

Bridges and McGowan remain suspects. There is still no police report and no charges filed as of mid-afternoon on Saturday.

This is the story told through the police scanner as it happened Thursday, April 15, 2021.

It’s not a finished story yet. But the players involved have been suspended indefinitely pending the resolution of this situation. We’ll end with the statement provided us by OU Athletics.

“We are aware of a matter that may involve OU student-athletes and are monitoring the situation closely. 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."

Best players? Bridges hasn’t played a whole lot and McGowan was third string last year.

Try again.

I know many Sooner fans thought bridges was the most talented WR returning. The RB was a big recruit too.

These weren’t walk ons getting their faces rearranged in a piss puddle. These were actual players the coaching staff was excited about and looking forward to.

My info comes from a fourth gen Sooner with family in the AD. Not a t shirt fan that hangs out on Poke boards.

Next.

Surely they can find someone to replace 9 receptions, 101 yards and 2 touchdowns.

As well as 570 all purpose yards and 4 scores.

Oklahoma just got Eric Gray transfer and Kennedy Brooks back. They also moved over Mikey Henderson to RB. You should remember him from last years Bedlam.

Oklahoma is stacked at WR as well. Plus you can move Billy Bowman or DJ Graham over from DB and be star wideouts too.

You can talk potential all you want. This team is loaded.

He might have been the most talented wr, but it doesn't matter if he's involved himself in this criminal behavior. His contributions though have not been anything that cant be replaced. Same with the rb.

You know the offseason is off the rails when we have two brothers smash two goon football players in a restroom, the reefer madness is out of control in Norman, and yet all we hear from TG is "It's not bad, we will move blah-blah to blah-blah and it will be perfect" Remember you are on an O-State message board we have no clue who the hell you are even talking about switching around and frankly don't care. We are all just waiting for the belly button tat to have his press conference and tell us all that nothing really happened and this was all just a misunderstanding.

They were big next in line guys. I’m sure there’s next man up, but those two were far from nobodies.

I know everyone is mostly joking but for one of them it’s not his first strike and these are serious charges, more so than normal for their players (especially in today’s gun hating time). I would be surprised if they are not kicked off the team.
will never happen.......... not in Norman. too bad they didn't break a small females face, then they could just redshirt

I never implied otherwise. It'll hurt. But it doesnt mean they cant be replaced. I suspect there is more to this story than what we have heard publicly. I think there's a reason why police questioned Bridges, and let him go and why they havent located mcgowan yet. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.

If a kid wants to play ball, he’ll play by the rules and play ball.

If he doesn’t, then he won’t see the field anyway.

Oklahoma didn’t have any WR attrition this offseason of any note. Bridges only played in the bowl game last year. Outside of him, they have Haselwood, Wease, Mims, Stoops, Darby, and newcomers Mario Williams and Cody Jackson. Williams has been turning heads all spring camp and seems to be a day one player. Jalil Farooq comes in this June.

At RB, they lost Rhamondre but gained Eric Gray and Kennedy Brooks back who have loads of playing experience. Gray has been killing it this spring. Marcus Major made some game changing plays last year and Mikey Henderson is too talented to keep off the field and has been moved to RB from his place at HB to get more touches.

They’ll be just fine.

Bad deal. Really hate to see young men make poor choices like this that will haunt them for a very long time. To be honest, I really felt like McGowan was going to be special down the road for ou.
