Iowa free safety Brandon Snyder was arrested by Iowa City police early Sunday morning and charged with drunken driving following a traffic stop near Kinnick Stadium.

According to police reports, an off-duty dispatcher called police around 3:04 a.m. to report a vehicle being driven recklessly. An officer located Snyder driving a 2017 Dodge Challenger near the intersection of Melrose Avenue and Hawkins Drive.

The vehicle was pulled over and reports indicate that Snyder displayed multiple signs of intoxication, including impaired speech and an odor of alcohol.


The report indicates that Snyder, 22, admitted to drinking, was wearing multiple bar wristbands and showed what was described as “measurable impairment’’ on field sobriety tests.

A breath test measured Snyder’s blood alcohol content at .163, more than twice the legal limit to operate a motor vehicle under Iowa statute.

The junior who played in one game this season for the Hawkeyes and has undergone surgery twice this year to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left leg was charged with operating while intoxicated.

Coach Kirk Ferentz issued a statement Sunday indicating that he was aware of the incident.

“While we are currently gathering additional facts, we are very disappointed to learn of Brandon’s involvement,’’ Ferentz said. “Brandon is subject to the rules and regulations of the UI Student-Athlete Code of Conduct, and the rules and regulations of our football program.’’


A member of the Iowa football team’s leadership group for the 2017 season, Snyder arrived at Iowa as a walk-on and earned a scholarship, recording 85 tackles and three interceptions in 2016 as a first-year starter in the Hawkeye secondary.

He initially tore the ligament in his left leg early in spring practices, but returned to competition earlier than expected for an Oct. 7 game against Illinois when he recorded three tackles, returned an interception 89 yards for a touchdown and broke up two additional passes.

Snyder also re-injured his knee in the game, requiring an additional surgery. Ferentz indicated in November that Snyder is not expected to return to the field for Iowa until June.

A Texas DPS trooper, along with other law enforcement, was involved in a high-speed chase earlier today in Lynn, Lubbock and Hale counties.

The trooper stopped a 2015 Dodge Challenger on US 87 in Lynn County around 11:40 this morning (Jan. 17). The vehicle then sped off after the trooper exited his vehicle.

The Dodge Challenger was then spotted by a Lubbock County Sheriff’s Deputy on MLK and the chase resumed again. The suspect then led authorities onto East Loop 289 and then I-27 traveling northbound. The suspect’s vehicle was then successfully intercepted on I-27 in Hale County, near Plainview.

DPS used spikes to deflate the Challenger’s tires.

The driver of the vehicle was immediately arrested and identified as 28 year-old Chez Eugene Weaver of Lubbock. He was wanted on a parole violation for burglary and additional charges are pending.
