Two University of Iowa wrestlers have been suspended from the team after they were arrested for illegally hunting rabbits on campus, according to Hawk Central.

Iowa Athletics Director Gary Barta told the website that freshmen Alex Meyer and Connor Ryan were arrested Tuesday by University of Iowa campus police. Barta says they used BB guns and air rifles during the hunt.

Barta says both are suspended indefinitely and will face disciplinary action through university and athletics department policies, the website said.

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

Meyer’s mother, Lorna, told the website she had no information on her son’s arrest. A message for Ryan wasn’t immediately returned.
