SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Freshman Iowa basketball player Kyle Meyer had a guilty plea for public intoxication set aside Monday, with the Alpharetta, Ga., native instead pleading guilty to PAULA. According to a release from Meyer’s attorney, Randy Larson, the 18-year-old had his charges amended in agreement with Johnson County prosecutor Janet Lyness even though Meyer did not have any alcohol in his possession at the time of his Aug. 18 arrest.

The public intoxication charges were in dispute in part because it was deemed that Meyer was not in a public place when arrested. In a written statement through Larson, Meyer apologized to his teammates, coaches, and Iowa basketball fans. He also said that he “will learn from this experience and ensure nothing like this ever happens again.”
