Yep, it’s the offseason.
According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, Kevonte Martin-Manley was, as a former teammate did in 2012, cited 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.”
