Iowa defensive backs Matt Hankins and Trey Creamer have been suspended from all team activities for one week after being charged early Sunday morning by Iowa City police with disorderly conduct.

Neither player traveled with the Hawkeyes to Saturday's game at Penn State and pair were cited after police responded to a complaint about a loud party at an Iowa City residence.

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 and investigating what was taking place, Hankins and Creamer both received citations for noise complaints and disorderly conduct.

"Their actions demonstrate poor judgment and are not reflective of the high standards of citizenship that we try to uphold,'' Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said in a statement announcing that both players will not be allowed to participate in any team activities for the next seven days including traveling to next weekend's game at Purdue.

No other individuals were charged at that scene.

Hankins, 19, started in Iowa's first four games of the season. The sophomore has not played since the Wisconsin game because of a wrist injury that required surgery and a hamstring situation.

He has 18 tackles and broke up one pass before being sidelined by the wrist injury.

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.
