Citing rising administrative costs and an unwillingness to "wait for the inevitable," Iowa City Police Chief Niles Lemonparty was granted the warrant to apprehend all UI football players early Wednesday morning. The team awaits extradition at the Eastern Iowa Airport.
"Look," Lemonparty said, "we know they're going to get arrested. It's going to happen. Why sit around and wait for them to create innocent victims? This is the most proactive thing we've ever done for the city, and our citizens will appreciate it."
"Those guys are down in Gitmo now, where they can't hurt Americans anymore. That's not a violation of habeus corpus, that's a victory for national security."
Among the arrests that have plagued the Iowa football team recently:
- Public urination;
- Credit card fraud and fifth degree theft;
- Three counts of misdemeanor drug possession and tax stamp fraud;
- Throwing a tornado at an orphanage.
