Johnson’s arrest was listed in the May 6 edition of the Andalusia Star News police blotter. The Star News reported, “Nico Johnson on a misdemeanor charge of harassment after a verbal, non-physical altercation with another male. He was released on a $500 bond.”
According to the Bama Beat, “Johnson’s brother Michael defended Nico to the Press-Register, saying ‘it was another student trying to provoke him, actually,’ and that the charge could be dropped as early as today.”
The Bama Beat also reported a court date is set for May 18.
CFT reports, “Johnson was named a five-star recruit by Scout.com and given a four-star rating from Rivals.com. The early word on the linebacker is that he will have a more-than-fair shot at winning a starting job as a true freshman. Provided, of course, he doesnâ€™t keep ringing-up littering, loitering or seatbelt violations.”
