Hyde Pleads Guilty to Interference Charge

By Marc Morehouse, Reporter

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Iowa cornerback Micah Hyde pleaded guilty to interference with official acts and not guilty to public intoxication stemming from a weekend arrest in downtown Iowa City.

Hyde will pay $397.50 in fine and surcharges on his guilty plea. A bench trial is scheduled 9 a.m. Dec. 27 for his public intoxication charge

Hyde was listed as the No. 1 cornerback on the depth chart Iowa sports information released Monday morning. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz released a statement Saturday night in response to three legal incidents Iowa players were involved in during the Hawkeyes' idle week.

Tight end Ray Hamilton, also listed on Monday's depth chart, was hit with a ticket for being underage in a bar after 10 p.m., a $300 fine. Offensive lineman Drew Clark was arrested for public intoxication on Friday. Clark pleaded not guilty.

"I was disappointed to learn of the events involving three team members, as all three of these student-athletes have been good citizens during their time in our program," Ferentz said. "We will follow protocol set by the UI student-athlete Code of Conduct, as well as taking additional measures within the program."
