Iowa offensive lineman Kyle Calloway was arrested early Saturday morning and charged operating a vehicle while intoxicated, according to Iowa City Police records.
While driving his moped, Calloway was stopped at the scene of a previous accident near the intersection of Morman Trek and Benton. The area was cordoned off by traffic cones and unmarked police cars.
According to the police report, Calloway, a 6-foot-7, 320-pound senior, drove between the cones and tried to drive through the accident scene.
Officers stopped him. He was given a breathalyzer, which showed a .106 blood-alcohol level, and field sobriety test. The legal limit in Iowa is .08.
Calloway admitted to drinking seven or eight beers.
Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz released the following statement Saturday afternoon:
“I was very disappointed to learn of Kyle’s poor judgment. Kyle will be expected to complete counseling and educational requirements, extensive community service obligations and game suspension prior to returning to the field.”
Calloway, who turns 22 today (June 21), is a fifth-year senior. He has started the last 25 games at right tackle, a streak that will likely end when Iowa opens the season Sept. 5 against Northern Iowa. He was a second-team all-Big Ten pick last season.

So, with Calloway facing suspension (likely multiple games, the same punishment Shaun Prater faces) and Vandervelde’s surgery (see comments here), the O-line is seeing its first adversity of the season. Good thing for them it’s still June.
