IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa running back De’Andre Johnson has been suspended after two run-ins with police in the past week. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said Sunday that he suspended Johnson from all team activities after learning about the sophomore’s latest encounter with police. Johnson was ticketed for speeding and eluding arrest on Saturday. A University Heights police report says Johnson drove his motorcycle 60 mph in a 25 mph zone and didn’t immediately pull over. Two days earlier, Johnson was ticketed by Iowa City police for maintaining a disorderly house after neighbors complained of a loud party at his house. Ferentz did not say how long Johnson’s suspension might last.
