Hawkeyes' Douglas Remains on Team
By: Steve Nicoles, Reporter
IOWA CITY – Hawkeye football player Dominique Douglas pleaded guilty to misdeamener theft Tuesday. And coach Kirk Ferentz says the wideout is still a member of the football team. Douglas was arrested early Tuesday morning. Iowa City police say Douglas allegedly stole three DVD’s from Wal-Mart on October 11th. University of Iowa police served a warrant at Douglas’ home at 2:30 Tuesday morning, but apparently had some trouble. Iowa City Police were told by University of Iowa police that Douglas did not answer the door when they went to serve an arrest warrant. Police had to let themselves into his home.
After Douglas was arrested, his teammate Anthony Bowman, bailed him out of jail. Bowman and Douglas are waiting trials for alleged credit card fraud. Both players are suspended indefinitely. Ferentz says he will not rush to make a decision on Douglas' future with the team. Ferentz said, "We'll let all the process take place and then we'll make an assessment after that. It's disappointing to learn of the alleged incident and we'll see how it plays out."
Five Hawkeyes have been arrested since August.
