TCU's Johnson charged in wake of drug sting arrest
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- One of four TCU football players accused of selling marijuana as part of a six-month drug sting has been charged.
Cornerback Devin Johnson is charged with three cases of delivery of marijuana between one-quarter ounce and five pounds of marijuana. Johnson and three others are accused of selling marijuana to undercover officers, sometimes arranging deals around practices.
Each case carries up to two years in jail and a $10,000 fine.
Johnson allegedly told an officer that 82 people failed a team-wide drug test ordered two weeks before his arrest Feb. 15. Others in the TCU program have disagreed with that claim.
Defensive tackle D.J. Yendrey, offensive tackle Ty Horn and linebacker Tanner Brock were also arrested.
Nine people have been charged so far.
