Former UW football player held in campus robbery

SEATTLE — A 20-year-old former University of Washington football player has been arrested for investigation in an armed robbery of a UW student on the Seattle campus.

Court documents say campus police stopped Zacchery Fogerson late Monday night as he was driving off campus in a car with its headlights turned off. Prosecutors say a silver revolver and the student’s purse and wallet were found in the car.

Fogerson has not been charged, but a judge found probable cause to hold him after a Wednesday afternoon bail hearing. He was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail. It was not immediately known if he had a lawyer.

Prosecutors face a Thursday charging deadline.

UW police say the 18-year-old robbery victim was not hurt. Fogerson was arrested shortly after the robbery.

The Seattle Times reported that Fogerson left the team in July 2011, after Coach Steve Sarkisian said that he was suffering from continuing issues with a concussion he received that spring.
