Freshman Iowa basketball player Kyle Meyer was charged with public intoxication early on the morning of Aug. 18. The circumstances surrounding the charge are unknown, but the Alpharetta, Ga., native was taken to the Johnson County Sherriff’s Office at 3:12 a.m. Aug. 18.

The Iowa basketball team has not made any statement regarding discipline, or lack thereof, with regards to the freshman’s arrest.

Meyer is a 6-10 big man who was the first commitment for Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery’s 2012 recruiting class. A three-star recruit, according to Rivals.com, Meyer played in two games during the Prime Time League and averaged 4 rebounds per game.

At Northview High School in 2011, Meyer regularly averaged a double-double in points and rebounds. In a Dec. 28 game against Goose Creek High School, S.C., the post player pulled down 20 rebounds for the Titans.

According to Hawkcentral.com, Meyer is just the second player from the Peach State to play basketball for Iowa since the 1940s. Point guard Michael Reaves (1985-88) was also a Georgia native.
