Johri Fogerson Arrested For Possession Of Marijuana After Police Chase

According to a report on Thursday morning, Washington Huskies tailback Johri Fogerson was arrested for suspicion of possession of marijuana and resisting arrest after leading police on a chase in the Mill Creek area. Fogerson reportedly took off on foot after officers tried to stop his car before he was found and arrested a short time later.

KIRO TV reported the details of the arrest, though information is still being gathered at this time. According to the report, Fogerson is currently being held at the Snohomish County Jail.

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.

It's unclear what his status with the team will be following the arrest, though it's likely Fogerson will at least be suspended pending the results of an investigation.

In 2010, Fogerson was lost early in the season with an injury, only appearing in Washington's first game. In his two years at Washington, Fogerson has carried just 15 times for 52 yards and a touchdown, adding 191 yards and a touchdown on 17 catches. With the depth at running back -- which includes Chris Polk, Jesse Callier and others -- Fogerson didn't figure to occupy a huge role this coming season, though all that is in question now.
