Iowa backup quarterback A.J. Derby will serve a two-game suspension after being arrested Saturday night for fourth-degree criminal mischief and public intoxication in Iowa City, coach Kirk Ferentz announced in a press release Monday.
“A.J. Derby will serve a two game suspension as a result of his poor decisions this past weekend,” Ferentz said in a statement.
According to a report filed by the Johnson County sheriff’s office, the redshirt freshman admitted punching out a bus window. Also according to the criminal complaint, the 6-foot-5 Derby had a blood-alcohol concentration of .120. The legal limit for being intoxicated in Iowa is .080.
Fourth-degree criminal mischief is a serious misdemeanor with maximum penalties of up to a year in jail and a fine between $250 and $1,500.
Derby, whose brother Zach is a Hawkeye tight end, has completed three of six passes for 30 yards in two games.
