Iowa’s top WR cited for… disorderly house?

Yep, it’s the offseason.

According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, Kevonte Martin-Manley was, as a former teammate did in 2012cited for disorderly house early Saturday morning.  And, no the citation has nothing to do with empty pizza boxes and dirty clothes being strewn about the residence.

Instead, it stemmed from a party at the player’s home:

Martin-Manley, 21, was ticketed following a complaint of a loud party. Police were called to 760 Sunset Street in Iowa City. The report states there were “people inside and (outside) making a lot of noise and playing music.”

Last season, Martin-Manley led the Hawkeyes with 40 catches for 388 yards. His five touchdown receptions were second on the team.

Martin-Manley is the third Hawkeye player to have a run-in with police this month. Defensive lineman Dean Tsopanides was charged very late Saturday night with operating a vehicle while intoxicated while defensive back Nico Law was charged with disorderly conduct.  Shortly after his arrest, Iowa confirmed that Law was leaving the football program.

In a statement, the school wrote that “Coach [Kirk] Ferentz is aware of the charges brought against Dean and Kevonte. As further information is gathered, both student-athletes will proceed through the UI Student Athlete Code of Conduct and are subject to team rules and regulations too.”

    Yes, yes, it’s always a “joke” that yet another Iowa player arrest makes headlines. Never, ever could it be the sign of a disorderly program or a lack of leadership from your beloved Kirk Ferentz.

    Ferentz is a nice enough guy, but Iowa fans are just completely, utterly, ridiculously over-the-top blind when it comes to the shortcomings of their head coach, both on and off the field–I have never seen anything like it in sports. Still, you have to hand it to Iowa fans for the unshakable loyalty they show to a guy who averages 7 wins a season–it’s actually more than a little scary to think about what misdeeds they’d close their eyes to if Ferentz actually won a Rose Bowl or managed a winning record against Iowa State.

    “Keeping a disorderly house” usually means that you’re operating a brothel. I don’t see that here. Apparently it doesn’t mean the same thing in Iowa.

    Bostonfrogs the player wasn’t arrested. He was cited which means a ticket. Not a big deal a player having a party and it gets a little loud. I cannot comment on the arrests in the Iowa program but this is minor. Most headlines when a party happens usually ends in a shooting. If there are serious felonies that are being over looked that is a concern. This instance is similar to a speeding ticket
