DES MOINES, Iowa — Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird said on Tuesday that she didn’t have any concerns with the Iowa DCI’s investigation into gambling by University of Iowa and Iowa State University athletes.

“I don’t have any concerns about that, no,” said Bird. “So, those cases aren’t in our office and my understanding was the investigation was done by DPS so I think they would be the ones that could answer that question.”

On Monday, the attorney for former Iowa State Cyclones Eyioma Uwazurike and Isaiah Lee accused a DCI agent of using improper investigation techniques and being dishonest in depositions related to the case.

DPS responded to WHO 13 News on Tuesday.

“The DCI does not comment on ongoing court proceedings,” said David Jobes, Assistant Director, DCI Special Enforcement Operations Bureau. “DCI agents involved in the investigation act as witnesses, and it would be inappropriate to make any comments regarding legal filings or other court proceedings. Any statements concerning the court proceedings would need to come from the Story County Attorney’s Office.”
