Oklahoma Football Player Arrested On Robbery Charges
University of Oklahoma football player Parrish Cobb was arrested Tuesday night after reportedly turning himself in for his involvement in several armed robberies.

Cobb’s attorney, John Lewis, addressed the warrant with the Waco Tribune-Herald Tuesday, telling the paper Cobb was making arrangements to turn himself in.
University of Oklahoma athletics spokesman Rowdy Gilbert announced that Cobb was “suspended indefinitely from all athletics participation,” after learning about the warrant. “The University will review the matter further, consistent with its student conduct process,” Gilbert added.
The 19-year-old football player turned himself in and was arrested Tuesday night. He is facing three counts of aggravated robbery.
