Trey Metoyer charged with two felony counts
Sophomore wide receiver Trey Metoyer was charged with two felony counts of indecent exposure according to documents filed at the Cleveland County Courthouse on Tuesday. Metoyer is currently not with the Oklahoma football team as both Bob Stoops and Jay Norvell said recently Metoyer was taking care of personal issues.
"He's going through some things right now," said Norvell Oct. 1. "He's trying to get his hands around it. And so we just wish him the best as he works his way through that."
Metoyer did not suit up with the team the following week for OU's game against TCU Oct. 5, which prompted Norvell to comment further on his status.
"He's taking a little break from football." he said Oct. 8.
According to the probable cause affidavit obtained by SoonerScoop.com, Metoyer exposed himself to two different victims in Norman. After initially denying both allegations, Metoyer later admitted to each incident.
The first count took place on Aug. 29.
"The victim advised she was on a balcony smoking a cigarette when she observed the black male driving through the parking lot … in a red Grand Am," states the affidavit of the Aug. 29 incident. "The black male backed up and pulled into a parking spot. The victim noticed a short time later that the black male had his (genitals) exposed while sitting in the car (performing a lewd act)."
The second count took place on Sept. 17 in Norman where Metoyer approached the victim inquiring about an ink pen.
"It was learned that the victim was walking her dog when she was approached by a black male who asked her if he could borrow a pen," states the affidavit of the Sept. 17 incident. "The victim went into her apartment to get an ink pen and when she came back outside, the black male was (performing a lewd act) in front of her apartment. The black male then asked the victim if she would want the pen back."
On Oct. 3, the Sept. 17 victim identified Metoyer in a six-person photo lineup as the man who inappropriately exposed himself to her.
Along with senior wide out Jalen Saunders, Metoyer was one of two Sooners on the preseason Biletnikoff Award watch list. In four games this season, Metoyer caught two passes for 18 yards with a touchdown.
SoonerScoop.com reached out to Oklahoma sports information for a statement from Bob Stoops regarding today's developments, but OU has yet to respond to our request.
UPDATE 10:15 p.m. - Bob Stoops issued the following statement just moments ago.
"Trey has not been with us since prior to the TCU game and at this time I do not anticipate that he will return to the team in the future," Stoops said.
OU also released a statement saying Metoyer has been suspended from the team indefinitely.
