FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- A police report says Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino had a female passenger with him on a weekend motorcycle ride that ended with an accident that sent him to a hospital.

The report was released Thursday by state police. It says Petrino was with former Arkansas volleyball player and current Razorback Foundation fundraiser Jessica Dorrell. Petrino, who is married with four children, didn't mention he had a passenger during a news conference on Tuesday, two days after Sunday's accident.

The report says Dorrell wasn't taken to a hospital. Petrino was hospitalized, but has since returned to practice.

Petrino will not be cited for the accident that occurred on a rural highway about 20 miles southeast of Fayetteville.
