Wegher named in custody suit


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Ex-Hawkeye running back Brandon Wegher has been named in a petition for legal custody, visitation, and child support, according to 3rd District Court records.

Megan Glisar, a former high jumper at Iowa, has asked for sole legal custody of the son she had with Wegher on Nov. 4, 2010.

The petition requests that child-support payments should be based on “imputed income” to Wegher on the basis that his earning capacity is “far greater than his actual income.” Glisar’s claim also asks for Wegher to pay for her legal fees as well as birthing and medical expenses.

Records indicate the petition was filed on March 21.

Wegher ran for 641 yards and a freshman-school-record eight touchdowns for Iowa in 2009, but left the squad after two days of fall camp in August 2010.

The Dakota Dunes, S.D., native was granted his release to transfer in December. He then walked on at Oklahoma in January, but head coach Bob Stoops said on March 23 he was no longer with the team.
