Sooners lineman suspended after arrest on burglary, assault charge

Jake Reed

Oklahoma has a pair of defensive starters suspended for the opener for various off-field indiscretions over the past several months.  Another little used Sooner has found himself in a similar situation, albeit for much more (allegedly) serious offenses.

OU offensive lineman Jake Reed was arrested over the weekend and charged with two counts following an incident involving his ex-girlfriend.  Specifically, the lineman was charged with burglary and assault.

An affidavit accused Reed of breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and allegedly striking the female as well as a male at the residence at a little after 3:30 a.m. local time.  From the Associated Press:

An affidavit filed in the case accuses Reed of breaking into the apartment at 3:31 a.m. Sunday and striking the woman and a man who was with her. The affidavit says Reed chased them upstairs and broke into a locked bedroom.

The man told Norman police officers that “once Reed entered the bedroom he began to assault him.” He said one of Reed’s punches grazed his ear.

The woman told officers that she tried to stop Reed from attacking the man “when she was struck in the nose and chest by Reed.” When the man fled, Reed pursued him stating: “I’m going to kill him,” the affidavit says.

The 23-year-old Reed and the unnamed female had been in a relationship since high school, with that relationship ending recently.  The woman also alleged to police that there had been previous incidents of domestic violence involving Reed.

As a result of the incident, the school confirmed that Reed has been indefinitely suspended.

Last season, Reed played in one game for the Sooners.

    Saban would suspend him 1 game. The most overrated coach in all of sports would let his team vote for punishment. Sec… Turning out criminals every single day

    Love me some Sooners, but this guy should hit the road immediately. Any man who would strike a defenseless woman…..

    If you ask buckeye fans, the female probably deserved it (see Hyde situation)

    Dude, I know the campus in Norman is crawling with availible co-eds, and you’re (were) on the football team. Let the HS Sweetheart go, no need to go all roid rage on her and her new boyfreind.

    As ugly as that kid is i’d be pissed too. I mean really what are the chances he’d get another girlfriend looking like that.

    Whoever thumbs-downed gorilladunk is a bleeping knuckle dragger… and ballsack, I’m guessing since you think this is funny you’ve done some beating on women yourself, a little nervous joke by a batterer maybe… then again, you use your scrotum as part of your ID, so what would anyone expect.
    You two should be compelled to wear a warning letter on your foreheads to keep even the drunkest of women from putting themselves in danger by associating with you.

    Take it easy EZ! I only beat women for good reasons. You know, my toast is too dark or not enough starch on my shirts. I’ll make sure I put smiley faces on my comments so you know I’m joking & you don’t your panties in a bunch next time. Now, get out of your Mommy’s basement, put on a clean shirt with no Cheetos stains and go find a job. Douchebag! :)
