COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Police say they won't make any arrests in a suspected burglary involving Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, in part because of reluctant witnesses who fear retaliation and harassment for bringing a criminal complaint.
Coach Gary Pinkel announced the junior receiver's indefinite suspension Monday for an unspecified violation of team rules. On Thursday, police said they had closed an investigation that began when an 18-year-old woman said Green-Beckham forced open an apartment door at 2:30 a.m. while trying to see his girlfriend.
The woman, who was visiting friends, said Green-Beckham pushed her down at least four stairs. She and a second witness told police they didn't want to press charges. A police report shows Green-Beckham's girlfriend sent 16 text messages to the woman asking her to reconsider pressing charges.
