An attorney for a University of Kentucky
football player has entered a plea of not guilty on the players
Jaron Blandford entered the plea today in Fayette District Court
on behalf of receiver Steve Johnson.
Johnson is charged with resisting arrest, failing to wear a seat
belt, failure to carry insurance and a driver's license, and
failure to pay a fine for expired tags. Blandford says Johnson's
insurance, license and tags are up to date.
Records show Johnson was arrested last night in Lexington, but
was released after paying a fine of $572, which included his bond,
a previous traffic fine of $189 and court costs.
Kentucky football coach Rich Brooks says Johnson will play
Saturday against Eastern Kentucky.
