Marshall FB player arrested for DUI, Obstruction, Leaving the scene of an accident

HUNTINGTON -- Details about the arrest of a Marshall University football player who was charged Friday with driving under the influence were made available to the public Tuesday.
Hiram Moore, 21, a senior wide receiver for the Thundering Herd who is from Huntington, was arrested Saturday at about 11:35 p.m. after the Mercedes he was driving wrecked into an unmarked police cruiser in front of the Huntington Police Department in the 600 block of 10th Street.
When several officers approached the vehicle, the driver tried to pull away but got stuck on a curb on the east side of 10th Street, according to the police report.
The officers told the man to exit the car and ordered him to the ground several times before he complied. While on the ground, the driver placed his left hand under his waistband after being told to keep his hands in plain view, according to the report.
The driver was given a breathalyzer test after officers noticed he had glassy eyes and slurred speech. His blood-alcohol content was .129, above the legal limit of .10.
Moore was arrested for DUI, obstructing, leaving the scene of an accident and driving on a suspended license, all misdemeanors. His license was suspended in November 2005, for unpaid citations according to the report.
Marshall coach Mark Snyder suspended Moore for Saturday's season-opener at West Virginia. Moore led Marshall wide receivers last season with 53 catches for 630 yards and four touchdowns.
