Details released in drunk driving arrest of Iowa offensive lineman
Details regarding the drunk driving arrest of Iowa offensive lineman Tristan Wirfs have been released.
According to The Gazette, Wirfs was arrested around 1:45 a.m. Sunday morning for riding a motorcycle while drunk. He also had two passengers aboard while driving.
Wirfs was pulled over because the passengers were laughing and yelling, catching the attention of nearby police officers. According to police, Wirfs smelled of alcohol and had “glassy, watery eyes.” He admitted to drinking alcoholic beverages earlier in the evening.
Police administered a breathalyzer test which indicated that Wirfs had a blood-alcohol content of .123, which is well over the legal limit. Wirfs was booked into the Johnson County Jail for operating while under the influence. It was his first offense.
Wirfs was the second Hawkeye to be arrested in the past week. Last weekend, defensive tackle Brady Reiff was charged with public intoxication.
