Star Tennessee Vols linebacker AJ Johnson and defensive linesman Danny O’Brien were arrested on alcohol-related charges in Knoxville on Saturday night, it was reported.

The report says: “Johnson was charged with purchasing alcohol for a person underage and resisting arrest. O’Brien, a reserve nose tackle as a redshirt freshman last season, was charged with criminal impersonation, resisting arrest and underage consumption of alcohol.

The report was at former UT player Dontavis Sapp – who was also arrested.

We have very high standards and expectations within our football program at the University of Tennessee, and appropriate action will be taken,” Butch Jones, Tennessee’s head coach said.

BOTTOM LINE: Johnson was a star for the Vols last season, making over 100 tackles. He is staying in Knoxville for his senior year. Tennessee will miss him the first 1-3 games of the season.
