Irving was caught in a photo taken the evening of April 8, carrying a stop sign and cheering in the Campustown area of Ames as police struggled to deal with a roving band of college-age people who were overturning cars and generally causing havoc while consuming massive amounts of alcohol.

It was reported Friday that Irving has been suspended from the football team following his arrest.

Several other persons were also arrested, and Ames police are continuing to investigate and take leads that could result in more arrests.

VEISHEA was shut down completely after the Tuesday night / Wednesday morning fracas.  One man was seriously injured and hospitalized.
