Fogerson charged

University of Washington running back Johri Fogerson was officially charged Friday with resisting arrest and possession of marijuana in connection with an incident March 3.

The charges, each misdemeanors, were filed in Snohomish County District Court South Division. Arraignment is set for the end of the month. The charges carry maximum penalties of 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Fogerson was stopped due to a headlight that was not working. During the stop officers discovered marijuana, charging papers say. As police attempted to place him in handcuffs, Fogerson ran away. He later turned himself in about three hours later.

The charging papers state that Fogerson, when asked why he ran away, said he was “just scared.”

He has been indefinitely suspended from the UW football team.

He played in just one game last year as a junior due to a hip injury but was said to be recovered and ready for spring practice, which begins March 29, though he won’t participate unless the suspension is lifted.

Fogerson, a 2008 graduate of O’Dea High, was expected to contend for a backup job at running back behind Chris Polk and Jesse Callier.
