Indiana University defensive back Jamar Johnson was arrested Thursday night and charged with resisting law enforcement, according to Monroe County records.

The arrest occurred at the Briscoe Quadrangle in Room 618 at 9:10 p.m. last night. IU police made the arrest.

Johnson just finished his freshman season in the cream and crimson. He played in 10 games at safety and special teams in 2018 and posted his first career interception against Rutgers Sept. 29. Johnson was also awarded Special Teams Player of the Week Honors following the Ohio State game Oct. 6.

Jeff Keag, IU's senior assistant athletic director for media relations, said: "Indiana University Athletics and the IU football program are aware of the arrest involving Indiana University freshman Jamar Johnson. IU Athletics will continue to gather facts, cooperate with and monitor the legal process, and take further action as the evolving situation warrants.”
