Iowa sophomore guard Peter Jok was arrested on charges of driving while his license was revoked at 11:45 p.m. Monday night in Iowa City. The arrest took place on the corner of N. Madison and Market Streets. According to the Cedar Rapids Gazette, Jok was pulled over for having improper rear lights and failure to have a safety flag on his moped.

Jok’s moped license was revoked after he was arrested on OWI charges last April. His punishment following that incident was in compliance with the UI’s Student-Athlete Code of Conduct.

“[Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery] and I were made aware of the incident involving Peter Jok and a moped this morning,” Iowa athletics director Gary Barta said in a statement issued Tuesday morning. “We don’t yet know all the facts, but we are gathering those today.

“I’m very disappointed to learn about this, especially in light of the fact that Peter had a previous incident earlier this summer. We will work through this in accordance to our Student-Athlete Code of Conduct and team rules.”
