Johnson-Koulianos Complaint

According to a report from the Gazette.com in Iowa, wide receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos is expected to make an initial court appearance in Johnson County District Court this morning on a variety of drug charges after investigators found cocaine, marijuana and other prescription drugs in his Iowa City home.

Johnson-Koulianos posted $8,000 bail and was released from Johnson County Jail custody Tuesday night.

Johnson-Koulianos, a Cardinal Mooney High School graduate and Iowa’s career leader in receptions and receiving yardage, was a first-team all-Big Ten pick this season. He caught 46 passes for 745 yards and 10 TDs this season.

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz issued the following statement Tuesday night:

“I am highly disappointed to learn of the charges. Derrell has been suspended from all team activities.”

Johnson-Koulianos, 23, and roommate Brady Cooper Johnson, 21, were taken into custody around 1:50 p.m. Tuesday after officers executed a search warrant as part of a drug investigation, criminal complaints state.

Johnson-Koulianos, a Campbell native, faces seven charges: four counts of possession of controlled substances, two counts of unlawful possession of prescription drugs and one count of keeping a drug house. These are all misdemeanors.

Investigators found more than $3,000, suspected marijuana, suspected cocaine and prescription drugs in the house during the search, police said. The circumstances which prompted the search were not known Tuesday night.
