‘Dude, I Blew Zero!’: College Athlete Sues Iowa Cops for DUI Arrest


A college student has filed a lawsuit against three Iowa police officers and the city of Newton after a DUI arrest in August 2022. Bodycam footage shows Tayvin Galanakis, a freshman football player at Willian Penn University, being arrested after performing sobriety tests and blowing zero on a breathalyzer test. “Dude, I blew zero!” The 19-year-old shouts as he’s placed into handcuffs. Galanakis was released later that night after police performed further tests to confirm his sobriety. After posting the bodycam on his own social media accounts, Galanakis was convinced by supporters to pursue legal action against the officers. The Law&Crime Network’s Sierra Gillespie discusses the arrest and lawsuit with Galanakis.
