Former UW football player charged in robbery

SEATTLE — King County prosecutors have filed a first-degree robbery charge against a former University of Washington football player accused of robbing an 18-year-old female student at gunpoint on the UW campus in Seattle.

The Seattle Times said that charging documents allege that Zach Fogerson held what appeared to be a gun in the victim’s face and demanded her property as she walked across campus late Monday night.

Court papers say the victim’s belongings were later recovered from Fogerson’s car, along with a BB gun, a revolver and a baseball bat.

Fogerson left the Husky football team in July 2011. Coach Steve Sarkisian said the player was suffering from continuing issues with a concussion he received that spring.

Fogerson was ordered held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
