A Dunkerton high school football player accused of taking a gun and marijuana with him to a road game in has been arrested in Texas. The investigation of 18-year-old Maryo Lindsey, Jr. started on August 30th when the Dunkerton Raiders played a road game at Riceville. Lindsey was injured in the game and transported to a local hospital for treatment. That’s when someone apparently discovered a handgun and suspected marijuana in his duffel bag and reported it to school officials.

The next morning, Dunkerton Schools Superintendent Jim Stanton called the sheriff’s office and asked authorities to investigate the matter. During their investigation, authorities received information that Lindsey had left Iowa for Texas. Today (Friday) sheriff’s officials received confirmation that Lindsey has been arrested in Texas on multiple Black Hawk County weapons charges – including possession of a Firearm on School Grounds – as well as possession of marijuana.

Lindsey is being held on $200,000 bond in the Dallas County jail in Dallas, Texas. He’s scheduled to appear before a judge in Dallas for an extradition hearing.
