Iowa freshman guard Peter Jok was arrested on charges of operating while intoxicated (OWI) early Saturday morning in Iowa City. News of Jok’s arrest was first reported Saturday morning by the Des Moines Register’s Rick Brown.

Jok, 20, was pulled over by Iowa City police while riding a moped at the corners of S. Riverside Dr. and W. Iowa Ave. The arrest was made at 2:43 a.m. after Jok blew a .082, according to reports.

Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery issued a statement Saturday through the UI while recruiting in California saying he would gather all the facts once he returned to Iowa City. He also said whatever consequences Jok faces will be in compliance with the UI’s Student Athlete Code of Conduct.

Jok is only the second basketball player under McCaffery’s watch to face any type of legal issues. In 2012, former Iowa forward Kyle Meyer was initially charged with a public intoxication after being arrested in his dorm room by UI police and would later get the charge dropped to a PAULA (possession of alcohol under the legal age).
