Iowa running back De'Andre Johnson has been suspended after two run-ins with police in the past week.

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz issued a statement Sunday saying he had suspended Johnson from all team activities after learning about the sophomore's latest encounter with police.

The Cedar Rapids Gazette reports that Johnson was ticketed for speeding and eluding arrest on Saturday. It says Johnson drove his motorcycle 60 mph in a 25 mph zone and didn't immediately pull over.

University Heights police didn't immediately respond to a message from The Associated Press.

Two days earlier, Johnson was ticketed by Iowa City police for maintaining a disorderly house after neighbors complained of a loud party at his home.

Ferentz did not say how long Johnson's suspension might last.
