Trevon Young, a Des Moines Lincoln athlete who said he plans to accept a scholarship offer from Iowa, was among six individuals arrested by Des Moines Police on Wednesday for third-degree burglary and interference with official acts.
Young, a senior linebacker who also played basketball for Lincoln last season, was among those arrested following an incident in the 6700 block of Chaffee Road in Des Moines, according to police records.
He told the Register in June that he planned to accept a scholarship offer from Iowa. Young had 61 tackles and caught 11 passes for 170 yards and three touchdowns last season.
Lincoln activities director Phil Chia on Wednesday afternoon said no action had yet been taken by school officials regarding Young’s status with the football team. Lincoln football coach Tom Mihalovich could not immediately be reached for comment.
Two incoming Iowa football recruits also were charged with offenses prior to joining the team for the 2012 season.
Michael Malloy, a Sioux City Heelan graduate and former all-state running back, committed to play to Iowa in July 2011. Malloy was arrested less than a month later and was charged with possession or use of drug paraphernalia, obstructing a police officer, second-degree criminal trespassing and operating a vehicle without headlights.
Malloy pled guilty of obstructing a police officer and was sentenced to nine months of probation. He also received a 20-day suspension from participating in activities at Heelan for violating the school’s conduct code.
According to Iowa officials, Malloy is on the Hawkeye roster for this fall. He is not on scholarship, however.
Greg Garmon, a running back from Erie, Pa., was arrested June7 and charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He pled guilty to the latter charge and paid a fine of $309.50. He’s also on the team’s roster.
