Tucker pleads guilty to public intoxication

Suspended Iowa guard Anthony Tucker has pleaded guilty to public

intoxication following his arrest last week.

Johnson County District Court officials said that Tucker

entered his plea Monday, though they could not confirm sentencing

details Tuesday.

The Gazette in Cedar Rapids reported that Tucker will pay

$195 in fines and fees.

Tucker was arrested by Iowa City police last week. Police say

the 20-year-old Tucker, the team’s second-leading scorer, accused

the driver of taking his cell phone and allegedly was hitting the

side of the cab.

The sophomore also pleaded guilty to public intoxication in

December 2008. Last January, Tucker was ruled academically

ineligible to play but returned to the Hawkeyes this season.
