BLOOMINGTON, IN. (WANE/WISH) – Indiana sophomore forward Hanner Mosquera-Perea was arrested and booked into the Monroe County Jail early Friday morning on OWI charges.

According to reports, the 6’9″ big man was booked into the Monroe County Jail at 4:45 a.m. and was charged with two Class A misdemeanors: operating while intoxicated and operating with a blood alcohol content of .15 or greater.

According to officials with the Indiana University Police Department, around 3:11 a.m. an officer with IUPD drove up behind a vehicle driven by 21-year-0ld Hanner Mosquera-Perea, on Dunn Street at 3rd.

Police say Mosquera-Perea was southbound on Dunn and had his left turn signal on. It appeared he was going to turn eastbound on a one-way westbound street, but did not. Mosquera-Perea then turned his signal off, and proceeded at a slow rate of speed down the road, weaving in and out of the lane and hitting a curb.

The officer then stopped Mosquera-Perea’s vehicle and arrested him.

Tom Crean – who is aware of the incident – told reporters it was a “disappointing shock” when asked about Mosquera-Perea’s arrest in a teleconference Friday morning.
