Offensive tackle Calloway suspended after OWI


Iowa offensive tackle Kyle Calloway will be suspended for the Hawkeyes’ home-opener against Northern Iowa on Sept. 5. The announcement came from head coach Kirk Ferentz shortly after the fifth-year senior-to-be was charged with an OWI early on June 20 at the intersection of Benton Street and Mormon Trek Boulevard.

According to police reports, Calloway, who was operating a moped, drove in between cones blocking off the road and attempted to pass through an accident scene Iowa City police were investigating at that intersection. Calloway failed field-sobriety tests and took a breath test, blowing a .106. Police said Calloway, who turned 22 years old on Sunday, admitted he had consumed seven to eight beers.

“I was very disappointed to learn of Kyle’s poor judgment,” Ferentz said in a statement on Saturday.

“Kyle will be expected to complete counseling and educational requirements, extensive community-service obligations, and game suspension prior to returning to the field.”

Calloway is the second player to be arrested on OWI charges this year. Defensive back Shaun Prater received an OWI charge in February; he has already been suspended for Iowa’s first two games of the 2009 season.
