Iowa State Player Charged in Credit Card Case
AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa State defensive back David Sims has been charged with unauthorized use of a credit card.

The aggravated misdemeanor charge was filed Tuesday by the Story County Attorney's Office. Sims is due in court Aug. 2.

Cyclones coach Paul Rhoads issued a statement saying Sims will face disciplinary action internally. He also says Sims has been relieved of his post as co-captain.

Sims, a senior from Gainesville, Fla., was the Big 12 Defensive Newcomer of the Year in 2009 after leading the Cyclones with five interceptions.

Police began investigating when a Des Moines woman reported July 17 that her credit card, which her son had taken to Ames, was stolen. The card was used at several Ames-area businesses. Police searched Sims' apartment last week.

A man who identified himself as Sims hung up when offered the chance to comment Tuesday.
