Iowa football player Kevonte Martin-Manley was cited for disorderly house by Iowa City police early Saturday morning.
Martin-Manley, 21, was ticketed following a complaint of a loud party. Police were called to 760 Sunset Street in Iowa City. The report states there were “people inside and (outside) making a lot of noise and playing music.” Martin-Manley enters his senior season this fall as the No. 1 wide receiver for the Hawkeyes. He had 40 catches for 388 yards and five touchdowns in 2013.
This was one of two incidents involving members of the football team over the weekend. Junior defensive lineman Dean Tsopanides was arrested Friday night for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
A handful of players from both the UI football and men’s basketball programs have been either cited or arrested over the last three months. In addition to Martin-Manley and Tsopanides, Nico Law — who has since transferred — was charged with disorderly conduct earlier this month, Zach McCabe was arrested for assault causing bodily injury in May, and Peter Jok was arrested for OWI in April.
“Coach (Kirk) Ferentz is aware of the charges brought against Dean and Kevonte,” Iowa media relations director Steve Roe said. “As further information is gathered, both student-athletes will proceed through the UI Student Athlete Code of Conduct process and are subject to team rules and regulations as well.”
