Fresno State Athletes Face Criminal Charges

FRESNO – The Fresno County District Attorney’s office filed charges against three student athletes, including the quarterback for Fresno State’s football team, in connection to a house party near campus last month.

Among those arrested was Zach Greenlee, the 20-year-old starting quarterback for the Bulldogs football team. He was charged with possession of alcohol by a minor, which is a misdemeanor offense. The official arrest report identified him as Zackery Greenlee. His home is in Stockton.

Fellow athlete Brandon Hughes of Fresno, a 21-year-old linebacker on the team, was charged with obstructing a police officer. Fanny Johansson, a 23-year-old team captain for Fresno State’s women’s soccer team, has been charged with public intoxication, also a misdemeanor. She resides in Fresno as well.

Officers saw Greenlee drinking beer while they were breaking up a loud house party on North Bond Avenue, officials said. Although Hughes was not drinking, he was with Greenlee during his arrest and would not follow the officers’ orders to leave, officials said. The party was on Saturday night, September 19, but the three were arrested early Sunday morning.

The athletes were each suspended by Fresno State for one game.
