Even if Husky tailback Johri Fogerson didn't smoke weed, he'd still look high. So if in fact he was blazing the chronic that a Washington State Patrol Trooper says he found in his Lexus after he pulled him over yesterday for a broken headlight, Fogerson would have looked practically asleep. Fortunately for the ball-carrier, he's a college athlete and can run like the Dickens. Unfortunately for him, his momma don't play that.
The Heraldreports that Fogerson was arrested Thursday for possession of marijuana and resisting arrest after sprinting away from an officer who had pulled him over and seen some weed.
When the trooper asked the driver for his vehicle registration, he observed suspected marijuana in the car, Leary said.
The driver was asked to step out of the car. The man was in the process of being placed under arrest when he broke free and ran eastbound on 164th Street, Leary said.
After Fogerson took off, he waited about three hours, then called his mom.
It's unclear whether Fogerson's mom called police and told them she'd be meeting her son, or if she talked some sense into her boy and got him to turn himself in. But whatever the case, soon Fogerson and his mom were meeting a WSP trooper not far from the original traffic stop, and the brief fugitive was on his way to Snohomish County Jail.
Entering his junior year, Fogerson faces steep competition for his position, and missing 12 games last season from a hip injury leaves him little margin for weed-influenced fuckups.
In other news, Husky Coach Steve Sarkisian is said to be considering recruiting Fogerson's mom to play linebacker.
