An Iowa football player has been accused of attempting to change the price tag of a shirt at a department store.

Marcus Binns, 21, 806 Wylde Green Road, was charged on July 13 with fifth-degree theft.

According to a Coralville police complaint, police officers were dispatched to Dillards, 1411 Coral Ridge Ave. after receiving a report of shoplifting. When police officials arrived, store security said they saw Binns switch tags from one shirt to another changing its value from $75 to $17.32.

According to the complaint, the total amount of the theft was $57.68.

Fifth-degree theft is a simple misdemeanor.

Binns, the younger brother of former defensive end Broderick Binns, is entering his sophomore season as a running back for the Hawkeyes. He did not see any game action during the 2011 season.
