Johnson, who is a freshman defensive back, was arrested on a charge of resisting law enforcement.

"Indiana University Athletics and the IU football program are aware of the arrest involving Indiana University freshman Jamar Johnson," read a statement provided by an athletics department spokesperson. "IU Athletics will continue to gather facts, cooperate with and monitor the legal process, and take further action as the evolving situation warrants."

According to Indiana University Police Department Lt.

The officers located two individuals nearby, and Johnson ran from the scene. He then returned and was arrested for resisting law enforcement by fleeing.

Johnson posted a $500 cash bond and was released from jail and placed on monitored release. A pretrial conference is scheduled for February 19th at 2:30 p.m.
