Missouri wrestlers arrested

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A highly ranked Missouri wrestler and his teammate face charges after police reported a fight in downtown Columbia over the weekend.

Police said 21-year-old Nick Marable, a junior from Collierville, Tenn., and another man were seen fighting about 1:45 a.m. Saturday outside a Jimmy John's sub shop.

Marable and the other man, 23-year-old Craig Koehmstedt of Columbia, were both arrested on suspicion of peace disturbance by fighting, a municipal charge. Police say neither was seriously injured.

Twenty-one-year-old Andrew Wood, a sophomore wrestler from Hannibal, was also arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct.

Marable finished third in the nation at 165 pounds at the 2008 NCAA championships and won a Big 12 championship while compiling a 27-4 record.

Wood wrestled three matches at 165 pounds last season.
