An Iowa Hawkeyes running back was cited for disorderly house Thursday night.
According to an Iowa City Police criminal complaint, officers were dispatched to 1311 W. Benton St., the home of 20-year-old sophomore De’Andre J. Johnson, at 11:27 p.m. for complaints of a loud party. Upon arrival, police observed about 50 people in the front and side yards, as well as the nearby sidewalks.
“Disorderly house – it’s not going to rock the Richter scale, but there will be consequences,” football coach Kirk Ferentz said Friday. “He didn’t sneeze, too, did he?”
Police said the party-goers fled into or from the residence when they saw officers approaching.
Loud voices could be heard from the street and neighboring properties and plastic cups and empty cans and bottles were scattered throughout the front yard, police said.
Police said when they attempted to make contact with the residents inside, the residents refused to answer the door. Officers eventually located Johnson in the back yard.
Johnson saw playing time in four games last season, rushing for 79 yards in 18 attempts.
