Iowa RB busted by police for second time in three days


Oh, my Angry Iowa Running Back Hating God.

Not one full weekend after he was cited by police on suspicion of disorderly house, Iowa running back De’Andre Johnson has once again found himself on the wrong side of the law.

According to a complaint from University Heights Police via the Iowa City Gazette, Johnson was charged with speeding and eluding on Saturday after he failed to pull over for speeding.

The report states Johnson was going 60 miles per hour on his motorcycle in a 25 mph zone in his neighborhood. When an officer turned on his sirens to pull Johnson over, he continued to drive until he pulled over in the driveway of another house, which he said belonged to a friend.

As a result of his little adventure, Johnson has been suspended indefinitely by coach Kirk Ferentz just before the start of fall practices.

“I was very disappointed to learn of the situation involving De’Andre Johnson Saturday evening.  As a result, De’Andre has been suspended immediately from all team activities,” Ferentz said in a statement.

    Now THAT’s a classic case of somebody who doesn’t get it!!!

    Wow – sounds like ‘disorderly’ best describes his approach to life.

    Anyone who’s spent any time at all in Iowa City is aware that University Heights is a glorified speed trap. Say what you like about the “UHPD,” you don’t speed at all along that strip.

    Lack of institutional control! I want to see what the chancellor does on this! She acted almight last week when she talked about PSU! I say 2 year bowl ban, loss of 5 schoralships for 3 years!

    Wanna bet he doesn’t miss any game time?

    These “suspensions” by college programs only provide the appearance of punishment to keep people happy. When it all blows over he’ll slide right back into his spot.

    It’s funny and ironic when stairwayto7 makes a comment, and acts as if he is a PSU graduate, (He is Penn State) but lacks basic spelling skills…….What’s a schoralship, and don’t forget the emphasis!!!!!!!!!!!! Face it ass clown, we all know you are a degenerate loser from PA…..

    I think Iowa gets extra credit for this in the Fulmer Cup race, but they still have a long way to go to catch Arkansas. Looks like the Hogs are going to win by an all time margin. LOL

    Not sticking up for stairway, but just because you graduated from college doesn’t translate into you being an excellent speller. I had a prof in college with a Ph.D that couldn’t spell to save his life and he was the first to admit it. That was over 20 years ago. Now with spell check and auto-correction they have to worry about it even less.

    Wow these kids are just freaking morons. Send his ass back to the hood where he belongs

    Send him back to the hood?@ imforbigblue. Really that’s where we’re at with comments like this. I take it you’re a Michigan fan by your handle, so is that how you feel about all African Americans? We’re just all from the hood, but some of michigan’s best players just so happen to be African American. Only in America, but yet though it’s the African American athletes who are bringing in most if not all of the revenue for everyone’s favorite football program… Another ignorant @$$ person talking out the side of their neck. Typical, but I bet you wouldn’t dare say that to the kid’s face…

    FYI… I’m not condoning what the kid did in any way was right, if anything it’s quite dumb in my book. But it’s just not cool to make ignorant comments like that when we al know you don’t have the heart to say that to his face or come into hood, and I just so happen to be an educated person who just so happens to come from the hood…

    to 700levelvet: who is your team, Idaho State? Or whoever wins the National title? By the way, shouldn’t you be in school or popping your pimples? How is that spelling..sweetcheeks!
