SASH ARREST: Ex-Hawk Tased After Scooter Chase
The Oskaloosa Police Department says a former Hawkeye football star was arrested over the weekend after a scooter chase.
Twenty-five-year-old Tyler Sash was arrested early Sunday morning. Police say an officer tried to pullover Sash at 1:27 a.m. in the southeast part of Oskaloosa because he was driving a scooter with no lights on. Sash didn’t pull over and then ditched the scooter, running from police.
When police found Sash hiding behind a tree he initially refused their orders to surrender. Police say he resisted when officers tried to put him in handcuffs and officers tased him and took him into custody.
Sash admitted to having six drinks within an hour but refused to take a field sobriety test. He is charged with public intoxication and interference with official acts.
Sash played three seasons with the Hawkeyes but declared for the NFL draft before his senior year. He was cut by the New York Giants last August.
