Two Gophers get restraining order prohibiting them from home games
Minnesota players Carlton Djam and Tamarion Johnson received a restraining order that would prevent them from playing in home football games, according to the Star Tribune.
The current restraining order, which is being appealed by the players’ attorney, was issued by the same woman involved in the Sept. 2 incident that led to the suspension of for Minnesota players, one of which was Johnson. No arrests or charges came of that.
Johnson, KiAnte Hardin, Ray Buford and Dior Johnson were all suspended for three games while police investigated the matter.
The reason Djam and Johnson would be prohibited from home games is because the victim is involved in the operation process for home games at TCF Bank Stadium.
According to the Star-Tribune, the victim requested the restraining order be two years in length. She told investigators that Johnson “taunted [her] on the street” following the Sept. 2 incident.
Djam, a sophomore tailback, only got work in a blowout victory against Indiana State. Johnson is a freshman defensive end who will likely redshirt in 2016.
Tracy Claeys declined to comment on the matter.
