SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

An Iowa women's basketball player has been accused of giving false identification and being intoxicated in public.

Bethany Doolittle, 18, was charged on July 14 with intoxication/consumption and providing false identification.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Doolittle was lying on a sidewalk kissing a male when police officials asked for identification. According to the complaint, Doolittle said she did not have any. She gave a false name, Stephanie Johnson; the name did not register in Iowa or Minnesota.

After being questioned, Doolittle admitted to giving a false name because she was scared.

According to the complaint, she had trouble completing sentences, her speech was slurred, and she had poor balance and bloodshot eyes.

Doolittle consented to a breath test, which read 0.155.

Intoxication/consumption is a serious misdemeanor, as is providing false identification.

Doolittle has played one season with the Hawkeyes, taking over the starting center position during her freshman year when Morgan Johnson suffered a knee injury. Doolittle is expected to receive more court time in the 2012-13 season.
