Tucker pleads guilty to public intoxication
Johnson County District Court officials said that Tucker entered his plea Monday, though they could not confirm sentencing details Tuesday. The Gazette in Cedar Rapids reported that Tucker will pay $195 in fines and fees.
Tucker was arrested by Iowa City police last week. Police say the 20-year-old Tucker, the team's second-leading scorer, accused the driver of taking his cell phone and allegedly was hitting the side of the cab.
The sophomore also pleaded guilty to public intoxication in December 2008. Last January, Tucker was ruled academically ineligible to play but returned to the Hawkeyes this season.
