AMES (AP)--Police in Ames say a member of the Iowa State wrestling team tried to pass himself off as someone else when he was arrested after a tavern brawl.
Officers say 20-year-old Andrew Wayne Long presented another man's driver's license when he was pulled out of the tavern Sunday night. They say they eventually identified Long after checking the wrestling team's roster.
Police say Long became combative as they administered a sobriety test and they had to use a a small jolt from a handheld taser to subdue him. After being examined at a hospital, Long was taken to the Story County Jail.
Charges against Long include unlawful use of a driver's license, being on the premises of a bar while underage, and harassment of a public official.
