An Oklahoma State University spokesman has confirmed that Victor Johnson, a Cowboy free safety expected to contend for a starting job this season, was arrested by OSU police on Saturday morning.
Johnson was arrested on a complaint of obstructing an OSU police officer, who had been called to Johnson’s Stillwater residence to investigate a complaint of a suspicious odor. The university spokesman told the Tulsa World that a search was conducted, and as a result Johnson also will be charged with possession of marijuana.
Cowboy coach Mike Gundy was not available for comment on Monday. The OSU spokesman said “the football coaching staff is gathering details on the incident.”
On Tuesday, Gundy is in Irving, Texas, for Big 12 Media Days interviews.
The 6-foot, 195-pound Johnson is a junior from Waco, Texas. He has appeared in 19 games for OSU. His 2009 season was cut short by a knee injury sustained in November.
