Hawaii announced Tuesday that senior RB Joey Iosefa has been suspended for three games following a weekend drunken driving arrest.
"I spoke with Joey early this morning and he is contrite, embarrassed, and remorseful for his actions," head coach Norm Chow said. "We have a set of core values and obviously he did not abide by them. After meeting with other members of the staff, the leadership council, and Athletics Director Ben Jay, Joey will be suspended immediately and stripped of his captaincy." The 6-foot, 245-pound senior has missed the last four games due to a fractured right ankle. Prior to that, he led the Warriors in rushing with 197 yards and three scores. "I apologize to my coaches and teammates, to my family, to the university and to our fans," he said. He can return on Nov. 8 when Hawaii visits Colorado State.
