COLUMBIA — Two MU wrestlers were arrested early Saturday morning in downtown Columbia, according to the Columbia police department.

Nick Marable, 21, was seen fighting around 1:45 Saturday morning with 23-year-old Craig Koehmstedt of Columbia, according to police reports. Both were arrested on suspicion of peace disturbance. Police say neither were seriously injured.

Fellow wrestler Andrew Wood, 21, was arrested and charged with suspicion of disorderly conduct. He is a sophomore from Hannibal.

Marable, a junior from Collierville, Tenn., enters the wrestling season ranked No. 1 in the nation in the 165-pound weight class. He won the Big 12 championship and finished third at the 2008 NCAA championship in the 165-pound weight class earlier this year.

The wrestling season begins with an intrasquad match this weekend.
