A former South Dakota high school star football player is expected to plead guilty in Iowa to charges stemming from a drunken foot chase through downtown Iowa City.
Police say 19-year-old Riley Reiff of Parkston, was seen acting disoriented and taking his clothes off in an alley.
Authorities say when police approached him, Reiff took off, running into the kitchen of a restaurant and knocking several trays on the floor. The pursuit continued for twenty-minutes and involved eight officers.
Reiff is an incoming freshman on the University of Iowa football team.
He reportedly refused to take a Breathalyzer test.
He's expected to plead guilty to public intoxication and interference with official acts and will pay a $562 fine.
