The Rainbow Warrior football team's win on Saturday has been overshadowed by some troubling news.

Hawaii News Now has learned that running back Joey Iosefa was arrested for driving under the influence Sunday morning in downtown Honolulu.

According to police records, officers arrested Marvin (Joey's given name) Iosefa at approximately 5 a.m. at Pohukaina St. and South St.

The 23-year-old posted bail at $500 and is due in court on November 11.

UH athletics director Ben Jay confirmed the arrest and tells Hawaii News Now that disciplinary action will likely be determined Tuesday morning, when players return to practice.

We're told that head coach Norm Chow is currently in Los Angeles with his wife Diane, who suffered a brain aneurysm last week.

Iosefa has led UH in rushing in two of the past three seasons and was on the preseason watch list for the Doak Walker award, which is given to the nation's top rusher.

He's missed the last three games due to a fractured ankle was expected to return in the coming weeks.
