Report: Ex-Iowa State football player arrested in connection with assault of Hawkeye hoops star Jordan Bohannon
A former Iowa State football player has been arrested in connection with the assault of current Iowa basketball guard Jordan Bohannon, according to a report from WHO13.com. The incident occurred in May.
Nicholas Kron faces an assault causing bodily injury charge after attacking Bohannon in May. The incident occurred outside a bar in Iowa City. Kron turned himself into police over the weekend.
Bohannon suffered a serious head injury as a result of the attack. He filed a lawsuit against Kron, saying he allegedly “brutally, unlawfully and intentionally” assaulted him.
Bohannon and Kron were both at DC’s Bar in Iowa City on May 23, according to police records. After the bar closed, police said Kron and another person got into an argument outside. Police say Kron walked over to Bohannon, turned him around and punched him three times in the back of the head, knocking him to the ground and causing a cut on his head.
Kron was a member of Iowa State’s football team as a defensive end from 2011-13. He played in 24 career games with the Cyclones and totaled 19 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
Bohannon decided to take advantage of the NCAA’s blanket waiver for winter student-athletes and will return to the Hawkeye basketball program for the 2021-22 season. Last year, the guard averaged 10.6 points, 4.4 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game for the Hawkeyes.
