Washington RB runs from police, gets caught

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Well, I guess since the Offseason Arrest Train was already in Pullman, it decided to make a quick journey over to Seattle to catch its latest college football player.

According to KIRO TV in Seattle, Washington running back Johri Fogerson was arrested overnight and is currently in Snohomish County Jail.
Huskies tailback Johri Fogerson is jailed on suspicion of resisting arrest and possession of marijuana after a pursuit that ended overnight in Mill Creek.
The details of the pursuit aren't known yet, but according to police radio traffic, a driver fleeing police jumped out of a car near 164th Street in Mill Creek just before midnight and ran. Police found the man and arrested him.
Fogerson is being held at the Snohomish County Jail, according to the jail roster. The roster lists "resisting arrest from the WSP" and "drug charge (less than 40 grams of marijuana)" as the alleged offenses.
Seriously, if I'm Steve Sarkisian, I'm not sure what upsets me more. The fact that my running back was arrested, or the fact that my running back couldn't outrun the police. I mean, if you can't get away from a police officer, then you've got no chance of outrunning an Oregon linebacker.

The school has not yet commented on Fogerson's arrest, or what kind of punishment he'll receive. Still, I can't help but think that getting arrested for marijuana possession and trying to evade police could do anything but help his rap career.
