McCarney daughter pleads not guilty in alleged assault incident

(Iowa City-AP-KWWL) Jillian McCarney, daughter of former Iowa State Head football coach Dan McCarney, has pleaded not guilty to charges of assaulting an Iowa City Police officer.

McCarney is a University of Iowa student who made headlines last month, more for her alleged verbal tirade, than for the actual incident. Iowa City Police were called to her residence on a report of a disorderly house. Police allege Ms. McCarney became verbally abusive, swearing at and then trying to kick one officer.

Police allege Ms. McCarney threatened violence against them several times, and told police the charges against her would be dropped, because of who she is; the daughter of Dan McCarney. Her late Grand Father, Patrick McCarney, Dan McCarney's Dad, was a long-time Iowa City Police Chief.

Dan McCarney is the former Head Football Coach at Iowa State University. As a college player, Dan McCarney was the starting center for the Iowa Hawkeyes, and later, served as an Assistant Coach under Hayden Fry. Dan McCarney is now an Assistant Coach for the NCAA National Champion, University of Florida, Gators. He has made no public comment on his daughter's run-in with the Iowa City Police Department his father led for so many years in Iowa City.

Jillian McCarney also faces the disorderly house charge, but, she has yet to enter a plea on that misdemeanor charge.
