University of Northern Iowa police spokesman Dave Zariffs says officers responded to a door alarm at Mojo's Pizza House in Cedar Falls about 2 a.m. Monday. When they arrived, they found Rinehart pulling on a locked door.

A police report says Rinehart, who played at Northern Iowa from 2004 to 2007, appeared to be intoxicated. Rinehart refused a breath test and was arrested.

Rinehart was taken to the Black Hawk County jail and released by court order.

Rinehart is a native of Boone, Iowa. He made four starts for the Redskins last season before breaking his right leg.

The team issued a statement saying it was "aware of this incident" but had no further comment.
