KIROTV.COM - University of Washington Huskies tailback Johri Fogerson was jailed early Thursday morning on suspicion of resisting arrest and possession of marijuana after he was pulled over and then ran away in Mill Creek overnight, according to court papers.

Court documents obtained by KIRO 7 Eyewitness News give this account of what happened: A Washington State Patrol trooper pulled over Fogerson near 164th Street and Second at about midnight because Fogerson was driving a friend's car with a burned-out headlight.

When he asked Fogerson for his registration, the officer saw a small bag of marijuana, then asked Fogerson to step out of the car.

The officer reached for his handcuffs and told Fogerson he was under arrest. Fogerson ran away, the trooper said.

The Sheriff's Office responded and began searching for Fogerson.

At 3:20 a.m. Thursday, 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 on suspicion of resisting arrest and drug possession, both misdemeanors.

Someone posted bail for Fogerson, and he was released Thursday morning.The Snohomish County Jail's roster lists "resisting arrest from the WSP" and "drug charge (less than 40 grams of marijuana)" as the alleged offenses.

"We are aware of an arrest of a member of the UW football team," UW football Coach Steve Sarkisian wrote in a statement Thursday morning.

"We are still gathering information and, if and when any action is taken on our part, we will have further comment."
