IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — University of Iowa wrestler Montell Marion has again been arrested on suspicion of a traffic violation. The Gazette of Cedar Rapids reports that Marion was arrested Friday for driving while barred – his third traffic-related arrest in Johnson County. A Johnson County Jail staffer told the newspaper that the 23-year-old Marion was stopped by campus police earlier Friday afternoon.

Marion was suspended from the wresting team in 2010 after he was arrested for drunken driving that spring, but was reinstated in January. A jail staffer said Marion was released Friday afternoon on a promise to appear in court.
