University of Iowa senior guard Josh Oglesby, 22, was arrested by campus police in Iowa City early Saturday on a charge of public intoxication, a spokesperson from the university’s Department of Public Safety confirmed Saturday afternoon.
The university’s athletics department released a statement from Iowa men’s basketball coach Fran McCaffery shortly after 3:20 p.m. on Saturday.
“I was made aware of the incident involving Josh this morning. I will collect all the facts when I return to Iowa City,” McCaffery said in the release. “Once fully informed of the situation, I will visit with Josh and we will operate in accordance with the rules and regulations of our student-athlete Code of Conduct.”
Saturday’s incident marks the third run-in with the law this offseason for a member of the Iowa basketball team. Sophomore guard Peter Jok, who attended high school at West Des Moines Valley, was arrested in April for an OWI and again in July for driving with a revoked license.
Jok has since been indefinitely suspended.
The 6-foot-5, 208-pound Oglesby, a Cedar Rapids Washington product, averaged 6.6 points in 21 games played last season as a junior.
