An Iowa State may have avoided a legal hassle in connection to an on-campus riot earlier this week, but one of his teammates, in an unrelated incident, wasn’t as fortunate.
According to the Ames Tribune, DeVondrick Nealy was arrested and charged with an excessive noise violation late Wednesday night. The offending noise was reportedly the music emanating from the junior running back’s vehicle.
What likely earned Nealy the misdemeanor charge was the fact that he had been pulled over by police 15 minutes earlier because of, you guessed it, loud music. He was given a warning the first go around.
While this a seemingly innocuous incident, it’s Nealy’s second brush with the law in less than 10 months. Last June, Nealy was reportedly “shooting things on campus” with a BB gun and ultimately charged with harassment of a public official. He was suspended indefinitely following that incident; because of his “prior,” that could very well be the case again.
Nealy’s 158 yards rushing in 2013 were third among Cyclone running backs, while his two rushing touchdowns were tied for second.
