The 23-year-old was arrested at around 3:05 a.m. for allegedly driving drunk around Missoula, where he played for the Montana Grizzlies. The charge was considered a misdemeanor, and he was released on a $700 bond roughly an hour later.
Johnson had a strong first season with St. Louis, as Turf Show Times wrote in January. He was selected with a high third-round pick out of the FCS school -- the second-highest pick in school history -- despite vague talk of "character issues." He had a good showing for a St. Louis team that ended up just below .500, picking off two passes and breaking up eight. He didn't gain a starting role, instead backing up Cortland Finnegan, but showed promise for the future.
