An All-Big Ten gymnast has been charged with two offenses on April 27 in Iowa City.

Junior Hawkeye Brody Shemansky was charged with disorderly conduct and public intoxication. He pleaded not guilty to both charges, and he has a bench trial set for June 20, according to online court documents.

He was cited for a form of disorderly conduct involving "fighting or violent behavior in any public place or in or near any lawful assembly of persons," according to the Iowa Code.

The 21-year-old Los Gatos, Calif., native had a standout 2012 season and was one of the top competitors for the Hawkeyes, who finished sixth in the Big Ten.

Shemansky was an All-Big Ten competitor in 2012 and finished sixth in the all-around at the Big Ten championships in Iowa City; he set a career-high on the event with a score of 85.150.

The junior also was one of two Iowa gymnasts to compete in the all-around finals at the NCAA championships in Norman, Okla.

Both disorderly conduct and public intoxication are simple misdemeanors that carry sentences of jail time of up to 30 days and a fine between $65 and $625.
