Three ex-Iowa wrestlers have been formally charged with a variety of offenses stemming from a March 18 arrest in Marion.

According to a KCRG report, Ross Lembeck, Seth Gross, and Logan Ryan — all redshirt freshmen — will face a number of charges, including two counts of felony-level third-degree burglary, seven counts of misdemeanor-level third-degree burglary, two counts of conspiracy to commit a felony, and one count of conspiracy to commit an aggravated misdemeanor.

As a result, all three were removed from Iowa’s roster, according to a release from Iowa head coach Tom Brands.

In addition, all three were charged with PAULA. Lembeck also received an OWI charge, and Ryan was charged with interfering with official acts after reportedly fighting with officers.

Ryan was cited and released for his PAULA charge and pleaded guilty to the offense at a later date.

The felony-level burglary charges and conspiracy to commit a felony charges are Class D felonies and carry prison sentences up to five years. All other charges are aggravated misdemeanors with could result in up to two years in jail.
