An Iowa football player has been arrested after his alleged involvement in a road rage incident earlier this year.
Starting defensive end Adrian Jarrell Clayborn is accused of assaulting a cab driver just before 2am on January 20th. He turned himself in at Iowa City Police headquarters just after 2:45 Friday morning.
According to Iowa City Police, Clayborn was stuck in a traffic jam near the corner of Bowery and South Johnson Streets when the cab driver honked at Clayborn, leading him to exit his vehicle and confront the man. The 20-year-old St. Louis native then reached in the driver’s side window and struck the man in the face, causing minor injuries. The attack finally stopped when Clayborn’s friend dragged him back to his vehicle.
Clayborn, whose listed address is on East Washington Street, is charged with Assault Causing Bodily Injury, a Serious Misdemeanor punishable by a maximum of one year in jail and a $1,500 fine.
Ok, seriously, road rage? In Iowa fucking City? Is there really even enough traffic there to become legitimately jammed? I could see if he were maybe from like, Quasqueton or some such tiny place and was freaking out at all that "city traffic," but he's from St. Louis! An actual major-ish metropolitan area with horrible traffic! WTF???
