Former Hawkeye basketball player Roy Marble has been charged with domestic abuse assault.
Forty-seven-year-old Roy Marble lives in Cedar Rapids and the woman with whom he lives has accused him of trying to strangle her on Saturday. Marble has posted tweets on Twitter, via @RoyMarbleSr, saying it didn’t happen and asking people not to jump to conclusions.
Marble, who grew up in Flint, Michigan, is the all-time leading scorer for the University of Iowa and he was drafted to play in the NBA. Marble was suspended in his rookie season back in 1990 for substance abuse. In 2009 Marble was stopped for speeding near Tipton and police found marijuana in his car.
Marble’s son, Devyn Marble, graduated from the University of Iowa in May and is taking part in pre-NBA draft workouts. Devyn Marble was raised by his mother and grew up in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan.
