Vols linebacker arrested, hates cars.

Only two things are certain in SEC football: Kentucky will be 5th in the SEC East preseason rankings, and a Tennessee football player will be arrested before the season opener.

Vols linebacker Austin Johnson was arrested over the weekend for fighting people and automobiles. Johnson was charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct after he tried to pick a fight with a guy in a bar. The other gentlemen declined Johnson’s proposal to fight, so Johnson took his hard sauce into the streets behind Tin Roof in Knoxville where he was found punching parked cars.

Johnson made 44 tackles for the Vols last season and he was projected to be a leader on defense at weakside linebacker this season.

The university has not yet released Johnson’s total ‘Bonus Round’ score:

    I wonder who has had more arrests and/or abortions in the past 10 years, Loserville or Thug U (AKA Tennesse?) This is something the fine folks at KSR should look into.

    I’m guessing Loserville.

    This is typical for the UT program…they are a blight on the league.

    Par for the course at UT. What a soap opera of a program.

    Ahh 2 seconds: Note To Self: Never fight cars – it will make your neck bigger than your head. Bet that guy doesn’t have a swallowing problem.

    This pales in comparison to the 17 Vols that were in the bar brawl last summer and nearly killed two people, including an off-duty cop. (Only one player kicked off team.) Come on 2011-’12 Vols. Try harder! You can do better than this!

    Not to defend the nasty Vols, but my kid actually knows Austin and he is getting a bit of a bad
    rap on this. Not a bad kid at all. Got liquored up and acted like a fool, but this isn’t
    your typical UT thug.
