Iowa Hawkeyes RB DeAndre Johnson Arrested, Has Second Run-in with the Law

+Read full article

In a shocking but not so shocking incident, Iowa Hawkeyes running back DeAndre Johnson has been arrested, just days after being cited for a having disorderly house.

Johnson was arrested Saturday night at approximately 9 p.m. for failing to stop after police attempted to pull him over for speeding on a motorcycle.

Johnson was reportedly going 60 mph in a 25 mph zone, and once police attempted to pull him over, he continued to accelerate.

Finally several blocks later Johnson pulled into a parking lot, then proceeded to park his bike in some grass. When confronted by the police, he said he was going to his friend Jake’s place. Police were unable to find anyone there named Jake…

Johnson is being charged with Eluding, a serious misdemeanor which can lead to up to 1 year in jail and a minimum fine of $250, but no more than $1,500.

Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz made a comment following Johnson’s first citation:

“Disorderly house, it’s not going to rock the Richter scale, but there will be consequences… He didn’t sneeze, too, did he?”

Ferentz of course is fed up with reporters and the constant questions about his players and their actions off the field. While I understand his frustration, I don’t have any sympathy for him. Iowa players (specifically running backs) don’t exactly have the best luck when it comes to Johnny Law. Johnson is just the latest in a laundry list of running backs to get in trouble.

This is not want fans of the program want to see, just weeks away from the season opener. DeAndre Johnson was projected to at least compete for the starting job, and figured to get substantial playing time, but now that would seem to be in question.

At the end of the day, it’s just a disorderly house, and speeding on a motorcycle, so it could be worse. I don’t expect him to be thrown off the team, but he will most definitely be suspended. Johnson needs to tone it down, or he’ll soon join the infamous list of Iowa running backs.
