STILLWATER, OKLA. (AP) - Authorities have dropped a drug charge against Oklahoma State safety Victor Johnson, though he still faces accusations of obstructing a police officer and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Court records show that a charge of possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor, was dropped Wednesday and an Oct. 18 hearing was scheduled for the remaining charges.

Johnson was arrested in July after university police responded to a suspicious odor complaint at his apartment. Officers said they found marijuana after obtaining a search warrant.

Johnson’s attorney, William Baker, said a woman made a statement to authorities that she was responsible for the marijuana.

Prosecutors filed the DUI charge against Johnson in June.
