Indiana sophomore forward Hanner Mosquera-Perea was booked at 4:45 a.m. on a charge of OWI-endangerment, a Class A misdemeanor. According to a jail booking report, Mosquera-Perea was operating with a blood alcohol content of .15. More information to come.
UPDATE: According to lieutenant Craig Munroe of the IU Police Department, Mosquera-Perea was stopped at 3:11 a.m. at the 1200 block of E. Atwater Street. Officer Kyle Mulden got behind Mosquera-Perea’s vehicle on Dunn Street where intersects with Third Street. The vehicle had its left turn signal on, which was an issue because the vehicle would have been turning into oncoming traffic on a one-way street. The vehicle began to take a left turn but corrected itself. It did, however, strike a the northside curb where Dunn Street curves and becomes E. Atwater. Monroe said the vehicle continued to swerve in and out of its lane and struck the curb a second time. That was when officer Mulden initiated the traffic stop. After a field sobriety test, it was determined that Mosquera-Perea was impaired. His blood alcohol content was tested and found to be over .15 and he was formally charged with Operating While Intoxicated-Endangerment.
UPDATE: Indiana coach Tom Crean said he was just made aware of Mosquera-Perea’s arrest at 8:15 a.m. He said he was still gathering information and had not yet made a determination on his status. However, he called the incident a “disappointing shock to all of us.”
