Iowa Hawkeyes basketball player Peter Jok can’t stop getting in trouble with his moped. The sophomore guard was arrested Monday night and charged with driving a moped on a revoked license, his second moped-related offense in three months.
Jok had his moped license taken away after an April drunk driving incident, and at the time was also ordered to complete a weekend drunk driving program.
Despite having no moped license, Jok decided to drive around on a moped with no safety flag and improper rear lights. Apparently Jok doesn’t learn very well because his moped was in the exact same condition when cops nailed him the first time. The report from the first incident reads (via thegazette.com):
Jok, 20, was arrested on a black 2013 moped by Iowa City Police at 2:43 a.m. at the intersection of Riverside Drive and Iowa Avenue. According to the police report, he was turning from an improper lane, had no safety flag and a cover was missing from his rear taillight displaying a white light. Jok initially denied drinking but displayed watery eyes and smelled of alcohol. His initial blood-alcohol level was .082.
But at least the second time he wasn’t drunk. So maybe he can learn. If he gets nailed for a third time on the same moped with the same violations, I’m going to go ahead and assume he is a total dumb ass.
