A University of Iowa football player faces a public intoxication charge after police say he drunkenly mistook a police car for an Uber.
University police say 22-year-old Brady Reiff was arrested in Iowa City early Saturday.
According to police, Reiff tried to open the doors of the parked cruiser. When an officer asked what he was doing, Reiff said he was looking for a ride. When the officer asked whether Reiff thought he was an Uber driver, Reiff replied, “Yes.”
Reiff allegedly registered a blood-alcohol content of .204... not that he was trying to drive, but apparently, being a public drunk and getting noticed? That's going to get you arrested - unless you are the mayor https://www.10news.com/news/da-asked-to-investigate-la-mesa-police-actions
