Bowling Green’s Nick Johnson Suspended

Bowling Green defensive back Nick Johnson has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest for misdemeanor assault, according to the Toledo Blade.

According to the Toledo Blade, the incident occurred on Monday, April 6. “Johnson is alleged to have struck a female with a closed fist, then choked the woman, whom he was dating. The incident occurred in a parked car in Lot A on campus at 10:37 p.m., according to BG spokesman Dave Kielmeyer,” as reported in the Toledo Blade article.

As a true freshman last season, Johnson had a major impact for the Falcons in the secondary. He played in all 14 games, finishing with 72 tackles, 5 interceptions, and 13 passes defended. The 5 interceptions were tied for the most in Bowling Green history for a freshman with Martin Bayless in 1980.

For his stellar season in 2014, Johnson was named to the All-MAC second team at defensive back.
