Hawks OL Calloway Charged with OWI


By Aaron Hepker

IOWA CITY - Police say Iowa offensive lineman Kyle Calloway was arrested early Saturday morning and charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Calloway was arrested after officers stopped him while he driving a moped into a barricaded area. Police say Calloway was given a field sobriety and a breathalyzer test, which registered 0.106. The legal limit in Iowa is 0.08.

Iowa City Police Sgt. Mike Lord says Calloway cooperated with police and acknowledged he drank seven or eight beers.

Calloway, who will be a senior next fall, has started 25 straight games for Iowa. He was listed at starting right tackle during spring practice.

Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz released this statement:
"I was very disappointed to learn of Kyle’s poor judgment. Kyle will be expected to complete counseling and educational requirements, extensive community service obligations and game suspension prior to returning to the field.”"
