Iowa Prep Baseball Coach Suspended after OWI Incident
DUNLAP, Iowa (AP) — A western Iowa baseball coach has been suspended following an allegation that he was drunk at a game.
Coon Rapids Police Chief Joel Roetman told The Des Moines Register that the incident occurred during a Boyer Valley game in Coon Rapids on Friday night. Roetman says he performed a field sobriety test on Boyer Valley coach Jay Petersen and says Petersen's blood alcohol content later tested out at more than twice the legal limit if he were driving.
Boyer Valley athletic director Daniel Steele said Saturday that Petersen is on suspension.
Petersen didn't immediately respond to a message from The Associated Press on Monday. Online court records don't list the name of an attorney who could comment for him.
