    IOWA CITY (AP) - An Iowa football player accused of punching a cab driver who honked at him in Iowa City has entered a written not guilty plea.

    Police say Adrian Clayborn hit the cabbie about 2 a.m. on Jan. 18 after the man honked at the player. They say 20-year-old Clayborn left his vehicle, reached inside the taxi window and punched the driver, who suffered minor injuries, before a friend pulled him away.

    Two months later, Clayborn was charged with assault causing bodily injury, a serious misdemeanor.

    If convicted, Clayborn could face a year in jail and $1,875 fine.

    Clayborn, a defensive end from St. Louis, started 11 games last season as a sophomore.
