The legal problems continue to mount for former Whitehouse High School football standout and former Oklahoma Sooner David “Trey” Metoyer after his arrest this week on an indecent exposure charge.

Metoyer, 21, was booked into the Smith County Jail at 2:42 p.m. Wednesday on the Class B misdemeanor charge. 

An Anytime Fitness employee saw a man expose himself while sitting in a vehicle in the parking lot about 10 a.m. Monday, police spokesman Don Martin said.

The female employee’s description of the man led to Metoyer’s arrest, Martin said.

As of Wednesday afternoon, Metoyer remained jailed on a $1,500 bond.

Metoyer faces two felony counts in Oklahoma stemming from two separate incidents in August and September.

Metoyer was released from the Sooner roster after his Oklahoma arrests.

Metoyer started four of 11 games he played in during the 2012 season and played in four games in 2013, according to the OU sports website. In Oklahoma’s spring game in April 2013, he led all receivers with six catches for 122 yards.

While at Whitehouse, Metoyer had 259 catches for 3,814 yards and 52 touchdowns.

After catching 108 passes for 1,540 yards and 23 scores as a senior in 2010, he was named the All-East Texas Offensive MVP.

Martin said Tyler detectives have been in contact with Oklahoma authorities about the cases there. However, Martin said the states’ cases remain separate.

Bishop T.K. Gorman Regional Catholic School Assistant Football Coach Randy McFarland said the news of Metoyer’s latest arrest saddened him.

McFarland, who was Metoyer’s coach at Whitehouse High School, said he hopes his former standout gets some help.

“He had everything going for him, and he really had to work hard to get his grades up to his football playing, but he did. This just makes me really sad to hear that he is in trouble again,” he said.
