Iowa athlete suspended after drunken driving arrest
A male university wrestler in Iowa was recently suspended from team activities after state authorities arrested him for driving a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI), an article of The Des Moines Register reported on July 11.
The 21-year-old wrestler for Iowa State University reportedly is facing an OWI charge after he was arrested by Iowa police. Authorities did not provided further details regarding the wrestler’s arrest and the charge filed against him. The wrestler’s coach expressed disappointment about the arrest and stated that they are handling the issue seriously, as the wrestler violated the code of conduct. The wrestler, who is currently suspended indefinitely from his team, is known to have two family members who were former members of the “Cyclones” wrestling team.
