Huskies tailback Johri Fogerson arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest and possession of marijuana

Washington tailback Johri Fogerson was booked into Snohomish County Jail on Thursday morning on suspicion of resisting arrest and possession of 40 grams or less of marijuana.

Bail was set at $500.

“We are aware of an arrest of a member of the UW football team,” Huskies coach Steve Sarkisian said in a statement released by the school. “We are still gathering information and, if and when any action is taken on our part, we will have further comment.”

Fogerson, 21, was The Associated Press state player of the year as a senior at O’Dea in 2007 as a running back and safety.

He played safety for the Huskies as a true freshman in 2008, then moved to tailback as a sophomore in 2009, appearing in nine games.

He played in just one game last season, the opener against BYU, before suffering a hip injury that held him out the rest of the season. He had one carry for six yards.

Washington coach Steve Sarkisian had said the school was attempting to get a medical redshirt year for Fogerson so he could regain the year of eligibility.

If healthy, he was expected to contend for a spot in the tailback rotation behind returning starter Chris Polk.
