Two Gopher Wrestlers Arrested on Criminal Sexual Conduct Charges
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Nationally-ranked University of Minnesota heavyweight wrestler Gable Stevenson and a teammate have been arrested on suspicion of criminal sexual conduct.
KARE-TV reports that an Athletics Department statement to the station confirmed the two men arrested were on the wrestling team.
They have not been charged.
KSTP-TV reports that jail records show Stevenson and Dylan Martinez were arrested Saturday night at different times and places in Minneapolis. Authorities have not released details.
Stevenson was a four-time state champion at Apple Valley High School and was ranked No. 3 nationally at the end of the season by a respected rankings service. Martinez was a transfer from Fresno City College.
The Athletics Department says they've been suspended from team activity pending further information. It says federal and state law precludes releasing further details.
