The Trib (Behind the Stripes): Missouri WR Dorial Green-Beckham suspended indefinitely for violation of team rules
Post-Dispatch: Mizzou suspends Green-Beckham
KC Star: Mizzou receiver Dorial Green-Beckham suspended for unspecified violation

Green-Beckham is part of an ongoing investigation by Columbia Police, according to Sgt. Joe Bernhard, but has not been arrested.

Bernhard would not comment further but said information about the investigation would be available later in the week.

For now, Green-Beckham — who had a team-best 59 catches for 883 yards with a team-high 12 touchdowns last season — is suspended from all team activities per university policy, but he will have access to the academic resource center.

Columbia Police sergeant Joe Bernhard said Monday morning that Green-Beckham was not arrested over the weekend, but according to residents at Brookside Townhomes, Green-Beckham was involved in an incident there sometime between 2 and 3 a.m. Sunday. [...]

The only incident from Brookside Townhomes reported to the Columbia police within this time period is a burglary at 2:36 a.m. Sunday.

Missouri sophomore and Brookside resident Chris Connor said he heard shouting from the apartment unit next to his.

Connor's roommate Mike Henke said he saw a white Dodge Charger speed away and a girl hitting it as it drove away.

"After (Green-Beckham) drove away, his teammates were yelling at us to not call the cops," Connor said. "They were like, 'Dude, come on. Just don’t call the cops.’"

The Maneater: Details of fight relating to Green-Beckham emerge in wake of suspension

The Maneater link above provides some extra third-hand details, but those haven't been corroborated yet.

So basically, a lot of people witnessed a girl yelling at DGB as a car he wasn't driving sped away. There were evidently a lot of people around, so I have to figure cops won't have much problem piecing a decent account together one way or another, but we'll see which various third-hand details become part of the official story.

And now we wait.

UPDATE, 2:55 pm: Dave Matter's latest piece at the Post-Dispatch fills in a few more gaps:

Columbia Police have released an information report of an alleged first-degree burglary that occurred at 2:36 a.m. Sunday at 310 Old Plank Road at the Brookside Townhomes apartment complex. The suspect, victim and witnesses are all listed as confidential. The report lists the incident as forced entry. Listed under weapons used are “hands/fist/feet.”

The time and location matches the scene of an incident described in the Columbia Missourian as an altercation between Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham and an unnamed female. Witnesses quoted in the story, two male Mizzou students,  said they heard shouting from the next-door apartment unit then saw a white Dodge Charger speeding away as the girl hit the vehicle. The witnesses quoted in the story have not returned email messages from the Post-Dispatch.

This more or less fits with what we learned earlier, I guess.
