HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Police sources say Joey Iosefa was pulled over by patrol officers for driving without headlights about 4:15 a.m. Sunday morning. He was on South Street at Pohukaina Street, near Restaurant Row.
The University of Hawaii Running Back then allegedly failed a field sobriety test. A breathalyzer test showed his alcohol content to be .155.
Iosefa is the Warriors' star offenseman, but was sidelined by an ankle injury earlier in the season. He was listed as day-to-day and could have started this coming Saturday in San Diego. But the arrest will likely result in a suspension.
UH Athletics Director Ben Jay says he has not made any decisions about discipline. He wants to meet with Iosefa and Head Coach Norm Chow first, "Trying to get more information, and gathering them up, we still have to sit down." That's expected to happen Tuesday.
He was driving a 1997 Mercedes Benz, which belongs to Marcus Langkilde, a former UH Running Back. It's unclear if Langkilde was with him and where Iosefa was coming from but there is at least one nightclub in the area that stays open until 4 a.m.
Iosefa posted a $500 bail and is expected to be in court on November 11.
