AMES — Iowa State’s campus was sent into a fright Thursday night when university police sent out an alert about four males with weapons near the Freddy Court area — campus-owned apartments.
Two charges were filed Tuesday by the Iowa State Police Department. Cyclone freshman football player Dallas Taylor-Cortez — one of the four players suspended by coach Matt Campbell last Friday — was charged with harassment, 3rd degree, a simple misdemeanor. Tyciera Whitaker-Wells, a sophomore in early childhood education, was charged with a False Report to a Public Entity.
Iowa State Police Chief Michael Newton said Taylor-Cortez used a laser pointer attached to a BB gun, “threatened, intimidated or alarmed” at least one individual and caused others to run from the area.
The other three players suspended indefinitely by Iowa State were receivers Joseph Scates and Tayvonn Kyle and cornerback Jaeveyon Morton – all true freshmen. None of them had been charged as of Tuesday.

Devin Porter, a walk-on entering his fourth season at Nevada, was arrested Sunday at 5:33 p.m. by the Sparks Police Department for failure to appear on a traffic citation. The charge is a misdemeanor. If a defendant skips a court date, a judge can issue a bench warrant for their arrest. If 30 days pass before a defendant surrenders himself, an additional charge for “failure to appear” can be issued. The maximum sentence for such issue includes four years in prison and/or $5,000 in fines, although both are rare.
Porter was issued a $415 bail, which he posted and was released.
A Nevada spokesperson said the department is aware of the situation and still gathering more information at this time.
The Hug High graduate, a 6-2, 200-pound defensive player who has rotated positions during his time at Nevada, will be a junior next season. He has yet to appear in a game for the Wolf Pack. His brother, Cliff, was a starter at left guard for Nevada as a sophomore last season before graduating early and giving up the rest of his eligibility.
