News of the shootings on Dickson Street early Sunday morning, which included a bullet grazing former Razorback All-American offensive lineman Sebastian Tretola, reached Bret Bielema later Sunday as he was up to take care of his daughter.
“First, my heart went out to him that everything was OK,” Bielema said. “I think it’s kind of one of those alarms that goes off in your head to kind of just make everybody aware of what potentially is out there in the world we live in today.”
Bielema said he loves Tretola.
“Verbatim when I got hold of him yesterday, I said, ‘Hey, first thing I do is hug you and the next thing I do is probably punch you,’ you know,” Bielema said. “I just want him to realize what he has.”
