Johri Fogerson Arrested After Turning Himself In Following Police Chase

More details are emerging about the arrest of Johri Fogerson early Thursday morning. Fogerson was reportedly pulled over in the Mill Creek area and was asked to step out of the car after officers saw a bag of marijuana. When the officers attempted to arrest Fogerson, he ran, losing the officers on foot. 

KIRO 7 obtained more details on the arrest through a court records inquiry on Thursday morning. Forgerson, apparently, got away before being urged to turn himself in later that morning.

The Sheriff's Office responded, and began searching for Fogerson. At 3:20 a.m., the Sheriff's Office called the State Patrol to say Fogerson had arranged with his mother to turn himself in at 164th Street and Meadow Road. Fogerson was arrested about 6 a.m. and booked for resisting arrest and drug possession, both misdemeanors

Fogerson has reportedly posted bail and is expected to be out of jail shortly.

Washington released a statement on Thursday morning acknowledging the arrest, but offering no further comment on the matter. Fogerson is not named in the statement, nor are there any specifics in the brief release. It's yet unclear whether he'll be suspended or released from team activities as the investigation begins.
