Vandal offensive lineman Jordan Johnson appeared in front of a judge at the Latah County Courthouse Tuesday for a DUI charge, among other offenses, which arose from an early morning citation the morning after Idaho’s season finale at Utah State.
Johnson pleaded not guilty to the offenses and a pretrial hearing was set for the morning of Feb. 6.
According to the affidavit, an Idaho State Police officer pulled Johnson over at 2:37 a.m. on Nov. 25 after he failed to stop at a blinking red traffic light on Jackson Street in Moscow. The officer said that Johnson also failed to maintain his lane of travel.
The report stated that Johnson admitted to having consumed alcohol and he submitted breath test results of .153 — .141, more than Idaho’s legal limit of .08.
The state police officer said Johnson informed him that he had a small amount of marijuana in the driver’s side door. Also found in the vehicle was a bottle of Clomiphene Citrate, as well as a bottle of Tamoxifen Citrate. Both are prescription-only drugs and neither bottle had a prescription label, according to the report.
One of the mainstays on Idaho’s offensive line, Johnson started 11 of the Vandals’ 12 games last season, but has struggled with injuries since his redshirt sophomore season.
Johnson is currently suspended from the team pending the result of the case
