A college wrestling star and his teammate were arrested on Saturday for suspicion of criminal sexual behavior – although the details behind the arrest were meager.
The University of Minnesota's nationally ranked Gow Steveson wrestlers and Dylan Martinez were registered at Hennepin County Prison in Minnesota, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. The university said the two student athletes were suspended following an official investigation.

Steveson's lawyer, Christa Groshek, said the wrestler was "shocked" by the arrest and cooperated with the investigation.
"He cooperated with the forces of order," she told Star Tribune. "He cooperated by making a statement, and he did it because he did not think he had anything to hide. So the fact that he is in prison is a shock to him. "
Steveson was a four-time State Champion at Apple Valley High School and finished third at the 2018 NCAA Championships – his freshman season.
