Iowa State football players arrested, including coach's son
Sunday April 12th, 2015

Two Iowa State football players were arrested in separate incidents following the Cyclones' spring game on Saturday, including Jake Rhoads, the son of head coach Paul Rhoads, reports The Des Moines Register.

Jake Rhoads, 20, was charged with public intoxication. He will be a sophomore in the fall, and caught three passes for 24 yards in the spring game.

Defensive lineman Terry Ayeni, 23, was arrested after police were called to break up a "scuffle." Sgt. Joel Congdon of the Ames Police Department said officers saw Ayeni "punch a guy in the head." Ayeni, a junior in the fall, recorded one tackle in the spring game.

Both were taken to Story County jail in Nevada. Neither had appeared in court or was in custody as of Sunday morning, reports the Associated Press.

"We are aware of the situations involving our student-athletes," Paul Rhoads said in a statement Sunday morning. "We are now in the process of gathering more facts and information."
