Three members of the Iowa football team have found themselves in legal trouble this weekend, including senior cornerback and team captain Micah Hyde.

According to a report in the Cedar Rapids Gazette, Hyde was arrested early Saturday morning on charges of public intoxication and interference with official acts. While Hyde wasn’t listed in the Iowa City police blotter, two people from his hometown of Fostoria, Ohio, are listed in the blotter on similar charges, with the arrests occurring at Old Capitol Brew Works on 525 S. Gilbert St.

According to the Iowa City police’s daily activity log, there’s a report of trespassing at 525 S. Gilbert St. at 1:39 a.m. — the time of the two arrests that are mentioned in the blotter — with the following description: “Large group of subjs refusing to leave, 15 subjs.”

In addition, junior offensive lineman Drew Clark was arrested on public intoxication charges Oct. 5, and sophomore tight end Ray Hamilton, 19, was given a citation early Saturday morning on charges of being present on the premises after hours of the Iowa City bar, Pints.

UPDATE: Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz released the following statement Saturday evening: “I was disappointed to learn of the events involving three team members, as all three of these student-athletes have been good citizens during their time in our program. We will follow protocol set by the UI student-athlete Code of Conduct, as well as taking additional measures within the program.”
