Ex-UW football player arrested in connection with campus robbery
Former University of Washington football player Zacchery Fogerson is being held in connection with a robbery on the UW campus Monday night.
An 18-year-old student walking through campus was robbed at gunpoint around 10:30 p.m. Monday, according to UW police. Fogerson, 20, of Kent, was arrested by UW police shortly after the robbery.
According to a statement of probable cause, UW police stopped Fogerson as he was driving off campus in a car with its headlights turned off. A silver revolver and the student’s purse and wallet were found in the car, according to King County prosecutors.
He is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail, but has not been charged.
Fogerson left the team in July 2011, after Coach Steve Sarkisian said that he was suffering from continuing issues with a concussion he received that spring. Sarkisian called Fogerson “a young player that showed a lot of promise,” but that he “just never got a chance to get it going.”
Fogerson is the younger brother of another former UW player, Johri Fogerson.
