Brady Reiff, an expected starter for the Iowa Hawkeyes football team, has been arrested for public intoxication in Iowa City.
Reiff was arrested at 2:44 a.m. on Saturday morning and released a little less than seven hours later.

Based off of Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz's history with harsh punishment for conduct issues with his players, it would not be a surprise if Reiff is forced to miss some time in the season opener against Northern Illinois.
Reiff is an undersized tackle, but makes up for it with a high motor and scrappiness on the line. He is expected to fill the role of three-year starter Nathan Bazata, who graduated after last year.

Online records show the 22-year-old defensive lineman was booked into the Johnson County Jail at 2:44 Saturday morning. No other details... https://t.co/gJY2WdT2ij
Iowa looks to build on a solid 2017 campaign that saw them go 8-5, while losing some very close contests.
The Hawkeyes will need to finish some of those fringe games if they want to make some noise in the Big Ten.
