Omar Truitt, a defensive back who did not see any game action as a redshirt freshman on the Iowa football team last fall, was charged with Operating While Intoxicated following a traffic stop by Iowa City police early Sunday morning.
Iowa director of sports information Steve Roe said athletic department officials are still gathering details on what took place, but indicated Truitt would be subject to protocol as outlined by the UI Student Life Code of Conduct in addition to team rules and regulations.
According to police reports, a vehicle Truitt was driving was stopped by officers at 12:38 a.m. Sunday at the corner of Iowa Avenue and Linn Street in downtown Iowa City.
Because of inclement weather, Truitt agreed to have a field sobriety test performed at the Iowa City Police Department where he registered a .091 blood alcohol content on the Datamaster and was cited by police.
A native of Fort Washington, Md., Truitt redshirted in 2014 and is not listed on the depth chart released last month prior to the start of offseason work for the 2016 season.
