Iowa freshman running back Barkley Hill was arrested on charges of operating while intoxicated (OWI) near his hometown of Denver, Iowa. According to the Cedar Rapids Gazette, the arrest took place early Saturday morning.

In a statement released Saturday morning, Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz expressed disappointment and said Hill would serve at least a one-game suspension. The Hawkeyes open their 2013 season against Northern Illinois on Aug. 31, 2013. Iowa athletics director Gary Barta also issued a statement saying Hill would be disciplined in compliance with the UI’s Student-Athlete Code of Conduct and based off any further information he and Ferentz learned.

Hill was forced to redshirt this past season after tearing his ACL during an open practice held at Kinnick Stadium back on Aug. 18.
