Two Iowa defensive backs who did not travel with the Hawkeyes for Saturday's game at Penn State were charged early Sunday morning by Iowa City police with disorderly conduct.

Matt Hankins, a four-game starter at cornerback who has missed the last four games because of an injury, and reserve Trey Creamer were cited after police responded to a complaint about a loud party.

According to police reports, officers responded at 12:51 a.m. to 1120 Sunset Street in southwest Iowa City after receiving a call about a “disturbance’’ and a “loud party’’ ongoing at that address.

After arriving at the residence, police determined the party was being hosted by Hankins and Creamer and were both charged and released after being ticketed.

A wrist injury that required surgery and a hamstring situation have kept Hankins, 19, off the field in recent weeks.

A sophomore who remains listed on the Hawkeyes’ depth chart, Hankins started Iowa’s first four games at cornerback, recording 18 tackles and breaking up one pass before he was sidelined by the wrist injury suffered in late September.

Creamer, 20, has not seen any game action this season for Iowa.

A redshirt freshman, Creamer was listed as a second-team cornerback on the Hawkeyes’ preseason depth chart but was passed by freshman Julius Brents during fall camp.
