Former University of Washington running back Johri Fogerson is in trouble again - accused of breaking the jaw of a 15-year-old male student at O'Dea High School. In filing charging documents in the case, King County Prosecutors contend the altercation started after the victim used the word "nigga" while singing along to a rap song being played in the O'Dea weight room where he and Fogerson were working out.
According to authorities, Fogerson didn't take kindly to this use of the word - whether it was part of a song or not. The 23-year-old football player, who was kicked off the UW team in 2011 after pleading guilty to resisting arrest and subsequently transferred to Central Washington University -- allegedly fractured the left side of the boy's jaw, an injury that required surgery and the boy's mouth to be wired shut for 8-10 weeks.
Also according to charging documents, Fogerson allegedly called the victim and urged the boy not to involve the police or the courts, saying he had insurance and money to pay for the boy's medical costs.
