IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Former Iowa defensive back Micah Hyde plans to fight the disorderly conduct ticket he received over the weekend and a public intoxication charge he received in October.  Hyde’s lawyer, Cathy Cartee, said Monday that Hyde did nothing wrong when police responded to a loud party in his apartment building early Sunday, but she hasn’t seen the complaint yet.

Cartee says Hyde also denies being intoxicated during the October incident. But Hyde pleaded guilty to interfering with police and was ordered to pay nearly $400.  Hyde is scheduled for two trials in January. The public intoxication case will be heard on Jan. 22, and the disorderly conduct charge will be heard on Jan. 24.

Hyde started 38 games for the Hawkeyes before his career ended last month.
