IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa cornerback Micah Hyde says he made a stupid mistake and let a lot of people down after being arrested in Iowa City last weekend.

Hyde apologized to his family, coaches and teammates on Tuesday in his first public comments since being booked on suspicion of public intoxication and interference with official acts early last Saturday.

Coach Kirk Ferentz has removed Hyde, a three-year starter, as a team captain. He also tightened the team’s curfew after Hyde and reserves Ray Hamilton and Drew Clark were arrested in separate alcohol-related incidents.

Ferentz says he didn’t suspend any of those players for Saturday’s game at Michigan State largely because of their positive behavior prior to last weekend.
