Two University of Iowa wrestlers have been suspended from the team after being arrested for illegally hunting rabbits on campus.

Athletic Director Gary Barta said Wednesday that freshmen Alex Meyer and Connor Ryan were arrested Tuesday by campus police. Barta says they used BB guns and air rifles during the hunt.

Barta said both were suspended indefinitely and will face disciplinary action through university and athletics department policies.

Meyer is an 18-year-old from suburban Des Moines who wrestles at 174 pounds. Ryan is an 18-year-old from Bettendorf who wrestles at 141 and 149. Neither has wrestled in a match so far this season for Iowa, which is 3-0.
