IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — University of Iowa defensive back Nico Law is facing a criminal charge and consequences at school for fighting outside an Iowa City restaurant.
Law, who will be a senior this fall, was cited for disorderly conduct after the incident at 1:45 a.m. Saturday.
Police say the 21-year-old football player assaulted another man after that man argued with a woman who was with Law.
Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz said in a statement that Law will face discipline under the university's student-athlete code of conduct once the facts are gathered.
Law played in all 13 Iowa games last fall and recorded four tackles and one assist. He is from Clinton, Maryland.
