3 Iowa wrestlers suspended after arrest
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Three University of Iowa wrestlers have been suspended indefinitely after being arrested last week in eastern Iowa.
Marion police lieutenant Scott Elam on Monday said an officer stopped freshmen Seth Gross, Ross Lembeck and Logan Ryan on March 18 after the car Lembeck was driving matched the description of one suspected to be connected to a theft in the area.
Lembeck was charged with drunken driving. Gross was given a citation for open container and for interference with official acts. All three were charged with possession of alcohol underage.
No theft charges were filed.
Coach Tom Brands says he will use the university’s student code of conduct as a guide to address the matter.
Efforts to reach the wrestlers were unsuccessful. It wasn’t clear if they have hired attorneys.
