A sophomore on the Iowa women’s basketball team was arrested for public intoxication and providing false information to police Saturday night.
Center Bethany G. Doolittle, 18, originally of Oakdale, Minn., was spotted by officers lying on a sidewalk at the intersection of Burlington and Johnson streets at 11:07 p.m. kissing a man. Iowa City police said they asked Doolittle for her ID and she said she didn’t have one. Doolittle told officers her name was Stephanie Johnson and was born in 1991. She gave the officers multiple birthdays.
Police said the name Doolittle wasn’t valid through Iowa or Minnesota. Eventually, Doolittle gave officers her real name and admitted to giving them a fake name because she was scared. Her identification was in her purse, police said.
Doolittle had showed several signs of intoxication and provided a preliminary breath test of .155 percent blood-alcohol content.
Doolittle appeared in 31 games off the bench for the Hawks last season, finishing the year with 116 points, 57 rebounds and 19 blocks.
