Charge against Iowa freshman Kyle Meyer set aside

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Kyle Meyer's guilty plea for public intoxication has been set aside.  The Hawkeye freshman had entered the plea after being arrested Saturday night.  According to his attorney, Randy Larson, Meyer's charge was amended to Possession of Alcohol Under the Legal Age.

Larson said the amendment was appropriate since Meyer's blood alcohol level taken at the scene was .07 and he wasn't in a public place at the time.

On top of his legal fine, Meyer is set to perform 20 hours of community service under the University of Iowa's code of conduct for students.  Iowa Coach Fran McCaffery said he doesn't plan on punishing Meyer beyond the code of conduct terms.
