SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

According to a complaint by Iowa City police, 19-year old Anthony Salazar was observed early on Sept. 17 on the 400 block of South Gilbert Street crossing the street and punching another male in the head, knocking him unconscious. Salazar then allegedly began to throw punches at two other individuals.

Iowa City police responded and placed Salazar under arrest. According to the complaint, Salazar was allegedly highly agitated and intoxicated. He allegedly said the other males started the altercation.

Salazar then reportedly presented to officers a false Wisconsin ID and information. A search by officers produced a valid Iowa ID. Salazar then consented to a breath test, which showed his blood alcohol content to be 0.251, according to reports.

Possession of a fictitious driver's license is a serious misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in prison and a fine of $1,875.

Assault causing bodily injury is also a serious misdemeanor and carries the same punishment.
