Eagles Safety Keelan Johnson Arrested After Fight In Bar

Keelan Williams

An Eagles safety and former Arizona State University player was arrested early Friday morning after an acquaintance was involved a bar fight in downtown Tempe, Ariz., police said according to KTAR in Arizona.

Court documents said Keelan Johnson was standing in front of Zuma Grill just after 2 a.m. after an acquaintance was involved in a bar fight. Johnson was allegedly shouting over officers, who were detaining the acquaintance.

Johnson was told to step back multiple times and was given a “directional contact” to the chest. Johnson then allegedly shoved an officer. A brief scuffle followed, in which Johnson refused to lower his arms for arrest.

Johnson waived his Miranda rights and informed police he shoved the officer because he felt the officer didn’t have a right to order him around and physically attempt to move him.

Johnson appeared to be intoxicated at the time. He was charged with assaulting a police officer, passively resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

Johnson was born in Mesa, Ariz. He went undrafted in 2013 before being signed by the Miami Dolphins and then the Eagles.
