Iowa star receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday in connection with a drug bust at his off-campus Iowa City home.
Iowa's all-time leading receiver, Johnson-Koulianos, 23, was charged with keeping a drug house because "he knew drugs were being used and likely sold out of the residence," according to a criminal complaint filed by authorities. He was also charged with possession of cocaine, marijuana, and prescription drugs. He was not accused of dealing drugs.
His roommate, Brady Cooper Johnson, 21, no relation, was charged with dealing drugs and other offenses. The complaint alleges Johnson was "selling large amounts of marijuana."
Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz suspended Johnson-Koulianos after the arrest, which came as Iowa begins to prepare to play Missouri in the Insight Bowl on Dec. 28.
