Bobby Telford Arrested For Public Intoxication

Hey, it's been a while since we had an installment of Hawkeyes Behaving Badly*, hasn't it? Wait no longer -- wrestler Bobby Telford got arrested for public intoxication the weekend before last.

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Iowa heavyweight wrestler Bobby Telford faces a charge of public intoxication after an incident last weekend outside an Iowa City bar.

A police reported cited by the Iowa City Press-Citizen says the 20-year-old Telford was found leaning against the front of the bar late the night of April 20. Police say he smelled of alcohol and appeared to be intoxicated.

Unconfirmed reports said the bar won the match, 2-0. (GET IT? BECAUSE TELFORD WAS LEANING AGAINST THE BAR AND HEAVYWEIGHT WRESTLING IS REALLY SLOW AND BOR -- oh forget it.) In any event, Telford got arrested and the incident was duly reported (a week later).

There was no comment from Iowa wrestling coach Tom Brands on what Telford's punishment would be, but I suspect Telford might be getting very well-acquainted with the steps at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. I wouldn't expect this incident to have much (if any) impact on Telford's status with the team or his starting role. A 20-year old was arrested for being drunk. Oh, the horror.

* Strictly speaking, getting arrested for being drunk is pretty far down the list of bad behaviors, especially for a 20-year old in a college town. But it's also still technically illegal.
