After being relatively quiet on the arrest front since the start of the new season, the pace of off-field legal shenanigans has picked up of late.
The latest to find themselves with a legal issue? Iowa State’s Donnie Jennert (not pictured) and Walker Lee Woods (not pictured either).
According to the Des Moines Register, the Cyclones duo was arrested by members of the Ames Police Department very early Sunday morning and hit with a couple of misdemeanor charges. Woods, a sophomore running back, was charged with public intoxication and simple assault, while Jennert, a sophomore wide receiver. was charged with public intoxication.
The arrests occurred a few hours after ISU’s thrilling three-overtime win over in-state rival Iowa. Based on the first part of the paper’s account of what led to the arrests, at least one of the players was very loudly proud of the upset.
Jennert was seen walking down the middle of the street screaming. When an officer called out to him, Jennert ran. Officers found him hiding in a backyard and described him as “highly emotional” and had the odor of ingested alcohol.
Woods was involved in a physical fight, and admitted to drinking three to four mixed drinks within the previous 3 hours. His blood alcohol level was .08.
A female victim stated she and Woods were arguing and that Woods tackled her and punched her in the right side of the face.
Neither Jennert nor Woods are contributors to the Cyclones in 2011; the former has already been ruled academically ineligible for the season, while the latter isn’t listed on the two-deep depth chart.
