IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- An Iowa wrestler was among the more than 130 people ticketed for various alcohol violations in and around Kinnick Stadium on Saturday.

Brooks Landas Kopsa, 22, was ticketed for public intoxication at 7:55 Saturday night after police say they saw him walking down the street near Lot 33 with a half full bottle of Templeton Rye.

Police say Kopsa was having a hard time keeping his balance and blew a .176 on a preliminary breath test.

Kopsa, originally from Gilman, is a three-year letter winner.

Kopsa has a 6-4 overall record and did not compete last season.

An e-mail to the university regarding Kopsa's status with the team has not been returned.
