The DUI arrest of Georgia linebacker Cornelius Washington was the most relevant college football arrest from the weekend. The funniest arrest? That belongs to backup Iowa QB AJ Derby – the No. 1 ranked player in Iowa coming out of high school in 2009 – who did the following:
After a deputy arrived on the scene, he approached the 6-5, 220-pound Derby, whom witnesses had pointed out as the man responsible for punching out the window. The criminal complaint states that Derby, who turned 20 in September, admitted to punching out the window and said that he would pay for it.
The criminal complaint states that Derby had red, watery eyes and slurred speech, and that he smelled of ingested alcohol. Derby submitted to a breath test that showed he had a blood-alcohol concentration of .120.
Derby’s father was an All-Big Ten linebacker in the 90s. His brother, Zach, is a walk-on tight end on the Hawkeyes (he was popped for public intoxication in 2009 while hanging out with the coach’s son). If you’d like to compare BAC’s of the brothers: AJ blew a .120; Zach a .211. [Hawk Central]
