Iowa tight end threatened with gun in hometown of Omaha
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Police say a 23-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of pulling a gun on Iowa tight end Noah Fant.
Fant, a graduate of Omaha South High School, told police he was threatened Tuesday night while he was in a northwest Omaha park near his home. Fant says a man he recognized came up to his car window, pointed a gun at him and told him to leave.
Police say they saw Matthew Trimble run into a garage and that he later admitted to confronting Fant. Trimble has been charged with making terroristic threats. His attorney did not immediately return a message left Thursday.
Fant played in six games last season as a freshman for the Hawkeyes, making nine catches for 70 yards and one touchdown.
