A University of Iowa basketball player was arrested again last night. A police report shows 20-year-old Peter Jok was pulled over on his moped on campus shortly before midnight for having an improper tail light. He was arrested after officers learned his license had been revoked in connection with an incident less than three months ago. Jok admitted to drunken driving after being pulled over on his moped on April 26.
The West Des Moines native played in 27 games as a freshman last season and averaged just over 4.4 points. There’s no word yet if Jok will face suspension from the team or other discipline for this latest run-in with the law. Coach Fran McCaffery previously said he did not plan to suspend Jok for the drunk driving incident.
Iowa Athletic Director Gary Barta released the following statement this morning:
” (Coach) Fran (McCaffery) and I were made aware of the incident involving Peter Jok and a moped this 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.”
