Blotter: De’Andre Johnson Suspended

July 29, 2012

B1G Blotter, Iowa Football

De’Andre Johnson found it harder to elude police than Indiana defenders.

The criminal justice system had its hands full with Iowa running back De’Andre Johnson this past week:

The Cedar Rapids Gazette reports that Johnson was ticketed for speeding and eluding arrest on Saturday. It says Johnson drove his motorcycle 60 mph in a 25 mph zone and didn’t immediately pull over.

University Heights police didn’t immediately respond to a message from The Associated Press.

Two days earlier, Johnson was ticketed by Iowa City police for maintaining a disorderly house after neighbors complained of a loud party at his home.

Johnson has been suspended indefinitely (which doesn’t mean permanently) after bringing Iowa’s arrest/citation total to eight in the last two years – right behind league leaders Purdue and Illinois.
