Iowa dismisses running back De'Andre Johnson from team

The Iowa Hawkeyes are starting to run out of people to carry the ball. The team announced Wednesday that they dismissed sophomore running back De'Andre Johnson because of run-ins with the law.

Johnson was cited by police twice in a three-day period last week.

Johnson came in contact with the law enforcement the first time while hosting a party last Thursday at his house. Neighbors called the police complaining about the noise and Johnson was issued a citation.

Police say they tried on Saturday to pull Johnson over on his motorcycle, when he was doing 60 mph in a 25 mph zone. Johnson instead kept going on the bike and pulled over when he got to a friend's house.

The Hawkeyes are already thin at the position. Running back Greg Garmon was  charged with marijuana possession in June and Jordan Canzeri, Iowa's leading rusher in the Insight Bowl loss to Oklahoma, tore his ACL in spring practice and will miss the entire season.

Johnson had 18 rushing attempts for 79 yards last season and redshirted in 2010.
