Woman convicted of harassing football player

Posted:

IOWA CITY (AP) -- An attorney for a woman found guilty of harassing University of Iowa defensive end Adrian Clayborn has already requested a new trial.

Attorney Stephen Greenleaf filed a motion for a new trial Monday for 22-year-old Brittney Mears.

A jury convicted the Iowa City resident last week of third-degree harassment.

According to a criminal complaint, Mears was seated in the first row of Kinnick Stadium behind the players' bench during the Oct. 3 game against Arkansas State. Police said Mears called out Clayborn's name throughout the first three quarters of the game.

It was not the first time Mears was accused of harassing Clayborn. According to a previous charge, Mears was warned against making contact with Clayborn on June 28, but police said she continued to drive past his work place.
