(Source) – University of Arkansas freshman punter Blake Johnson was arrested early Saturday morning (Aug. 29) for public intoxication, minor in possession, and disorderly conduct.
According to a police report, Johnson was found urinating on a light pole in a university parking lot at 1:39 a.m. by an officer. When the officer approached him and asked why he was urinating on the light pole, he responded “because I needed to go.”
The report states the officer noticed a strong odor of intoxicants coming from Johnson, and his eyes were bloodshot and watery, his balance was swaying as he talked. The officer asked Johnson where he was coming from earlier in the evening and twice he told the officer Riverside, CA.
You have one job as a punter, kick the ball as far as you fucking can, and don’t piss in public while you’re underage and getting plastered on Dickson St. the first week of school. It sounds like that’s two jobs, but they’re basically one in the same when you really think about it. Just look at his face, it screams public urination bandit.
What’s more concerning to me though is the fact that this kid couldn’t even make it to last call. 1:39am… really Blake? Really?! I guess that’s what happens when you grow up in candy-ass California your whole life and then come over to run with the big boys in the South.
It’s not all bad news Blake Johnson though, with his arrest officially in the books, Arkansas has secured the lone #16 ranking in the College Football Top 25 Arrests rankings. Truly a proud day in their program’s history.
