Defensive back Mike Johnson suspended from team activities

Iowa State defensive back Mike Johnson is listed as an inmate in the Story County jail this morning with a charge of domestic assault/strangulation with injury.

First thing this morning, Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell issued the following statement.

“We are aware of Mike Johnson’s arrest and the allegations associated with his arrest,” Campbell said. “Our program has zero tolerance for domestic violence. Mike has been suspended from all team activities, including practice, under the student-athlete code of conduct policy as we gather more information. His long term status with the team will be determined once we gain more facts.”

Johnson issued 44 tackles during his redshirt freshman campaign at Iowa State last season.
