A former Iowa State University football player has been arrested in connection with an assault of a University of Iowa basketball star in May. 

Nicholas Kron, of Nashville, Tennessee, faces an assault causing bodily injury charge for allegedly attacking Jordan Bohannon, a Hawkeye guard, outside a downtown Iowa City bar.

Bohannon suffered a serious head injury. Kron turned himself in and was booked at the Johnson County Jail on Saturday and was released 20 minutes later. 

The arrest was made a few days after Bohannon filed a lawsuit against Kron, alleging that the former Cyclone defensive end “brutally, unlawfully and intentionally” assaulted him. 

Online court records did not list an attorney for Kron.
