Michigan lost to Iowa Saturday night, which may have driven plenty of Michigan fans to drink.
Iowa fans had a great time upsetting the second ranked Wolverines at home in front of 70,585 fans. That probably also involved alcohol.
According to police.uiowa.edu, a few fans had a little bit too much fun … and had to be removed from the stadium.
Michelle Keys, who is from Ankeny, IA, was arrested at Kinnick Stadium at 7:18 p.m. The 35-year-old thought she was in Ames, IA watching the Iowa State and Arizona football game. That game didn’t even exist. According to landof10.com, the two haven’t even played since 1968. She had a BAC of .225.
Tyler Gross of Merrill, Mich., was arrested at Kinnick Stadium at 6 p.m. when he tried to give an office a high five. The officer did tell Gross that he needed to “behave.” Gross didn’t take the advice and decided to argue with the officer. He had a BAD of .23.
21-year-old Clayton Sampson from Mason City, IA was arrested just before kickoff at 7:53 p.m. was stumbling around while almost falling had a BAC of .310.
Note that for medical purposes, a blackout is supposed to happen at about .25 BAC, a level where “all mental, physical and sensory functions are severely impaired.” That’s three times the .08 threshold for drunken driving.
It’s pretty crazy that these people were so drunk they didn’t even get to see their team take home the W.
