M quarterback Mike Johnson confessed Friday to making up a story that he was robbed and assaulted in his dorm room.
The 19-year-old freshman, a transfer from Tulsa, was charged Friday with filing a false police report and impeding an investigation, both third-degree misdemeanors, police said. Johnson was taken to the Leon County Jail and was scheduled for a first appearance Saturday.
Johnson told authorities he was thrown down on his bed by intruders about 4 a.m. Tuesday, police said. He told campus police the intruders wrote ``Mike + football death,'' on a mirror, refrigerator and television in the room.
``He confessed that he made it up,'' said Angela Kirkland, a lieutenant on the school's police force. ``He didn't really go into detail.''
