UVA Student Bloodied by Police During Arrest Will Plead Not Guilty

Posted:

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - The attorney for a University of Virginia student says his client will plead not guilty this week to charges stemming from his highly publicized arrest last week outside a Charlottesville bar.

Twenty-year-old Martese Johnson was charged with obstruction of justice without force and public intoxication or swearing after his arrest Wednesday. The Chicago resident will enter his not guilty plea at a scheduled court appearance Thursday in Charlottesville, according to a statement issued Monday his attorney Daniel Watkins.

Johnson was arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control officers after he was denied entrance into a bar. Photos and video of the arrest circulated widely on social media, showing Johnson with his face bloody as he's pinned to the ground by an officer.
