IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Three University of Iowa wrestlers have been suspended indefinitely after being arrested last week in eastern Iowa.

Marion police lieutenant Scott Elam on Monday said an officer stopped freshmen Seth Gross, Ross Lembeck and Logan Ryan on March 18 after the car Lembeck was driving matched the description of one suspected to be connected to a theft in the area.

Lembeck was charged with drunken driving. Gross was given a citation for open container and for interference with official acts. All three were charged with possession of alcohol underage.

No theft charges were filed.

Coach Tom Brands says he will use the university's student code of conduct as a guide to address the matter.

Efforts to reach the wrestlers were unsuccessful. It wasn't clear if they have hired attorneys.

University of Iowa wrestling coach Tom Brands released the following statement Monday:

"I am extremely disappointed with the decision-making of these three young men," Brands said. "I am currently gathering the facts and will use the UI's student code of conduct and our team rules as my starting points to address the situation."

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
