Former Hawkeye and Cedar Rapids Titan wide receiver Paul Chaney was arrested Wednesday morning for suspicion of operating while intoxicated.

According to University of Iowa police, Chaney was stopped just after 1:30 a.m. Wednesday at Clinton and Burlington Streets for running a red light and an equipment violation.

The officer says that Chaney admitted to being "not that drunk" and than later admitted he was drunk.

The complaint also states that Chaney told officers "they wouldn't last a (expletive) minute in Kinnick Stadium".
