The Fresno County District Attorney’s office has filed charges against Fresno State quarterback Zack Greenlee and two other Bulldogs student-athletes who were arrested last month during a house party near the campus.

The Fresno Bee reports that Greenlee, 20, was charged Tuesday with possession of alcohol by a minor, a misdemeanor.

Brandon Hughes, a 21-year-old linebacker on the team, was charged with obstructing a police officer. Fanny Johansson, a 23-year-old captain on the women’s soccer team, is facing a misdemeanor public intoxication charge, the Bee reported.

The charges stem from arrests made while breaking up a loud house party on Sept. 20. The Bulldogs lost to Utah 45-24 a day earlier.

Fresno police Chief Jerry Dyer said officers saw Greenlee drinking from a beer bottle. He later refused to hand over a beverage in a red cup. He did not take a breathalyzer test.

Dyer says Hughes, who was not drinking, was with Greenlee during his arrest and refused to leave when ordered to do so by officers.

Fresno State is 1-4 on the season and hosts Utah State on Saturday.
