Iowa State’s Kurt Hammerschmidt has been suspended indefinitely after the redshirt freshman tight end was arrested earlier this week on charges of drunken driving.
Hammerschmidt, 20, was stopped by ISU Police on Sept. 7, according to records.
Coach Paul Rhoads termed it a violation of team rules in a statement released Wednesday afternoon by ISU’s athletic department. Hammerschmidt played in the Cyclones’ season-opening win last Thursday against North Dakota State but did not have any statistics.
The 6-5, 244-pound Hammerschmidt is from Chesterfield, Mo.
