OXFORD, Ms — Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema and his wife Jen were arrested Saturday night following the Razorback’s game against Ole Miss for disorderly conduct and indecent exposure.
According to Oxford police, the Bielemas were apprehended naked in the bushes in the Southeast area of the grove behind Ventress Hall. Police began to investigate after 911 calls started flooding in due to a sighting of quarterback Brandon Allen in the area.
“We were searching the area for Brandon Allen, when we heard a woman scream ‘Take it in for a 2 point conversion!’,” Oxford police officer Cooper Williams tells us. “We walked up to find coach Bielema on top of wife engaged in intercourse. Both were completely naked except for the coach’s windbreaker jacket.”
The police report indicates Bielema initially agreed to go quietly before breaking off and streaking all the way back to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium with only his lucky windbreaker where police were able to tackle him just inside the end zone. The Brandon Allen sighting turned out to be false when the quarterback was also found inside the stadium, still throwing the ball to Drew Morgan.
In his post-game interview, Bielema alluded to his intentions.
“I thought we had a great game, now I am just looking forward to hopping on my wife,” Bielema said. He quickly corrected the statement saying he meant a plane, but clearly Bielema did not wait for the plane.
The University of Arkansas confirms the Bielemas were held overnight and released this morning without charges on the agreement that coach Bielema will coach the Rebels for four years following his usefulness at Arkansas. This is the second time the Oxford police have made such an agreement with a Razorback coach. The first coming after former coach Houston Nutt was found bound naked to a tree with a pair of golden handcuffs on campus.
