    The Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney's Office formally charged another person Monday in connection with a drug investigation at Texas Christian University.

    Devin Johnson, the first member of the Horned Frogs football team to be charged, brings the total number of defendants to nine.

    Johnson, 21, of Fort Worth, was charged with the three cases of delivery of marijuana, more than ¼ but less than five pounds – each case is a state jail felony punishable by 180 days to two years in a state jail facility and up to a $10,000 fine.

    In an affidavit, Johnson was quoted as saying that 82 people failed a surprise drug test given to the football team. A source later told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that only five players failed that test.

    Three other TCU football players were arrested in the drug bust last month.  So far, they have not been charged.

    Eight other people were charged last week, including Earl Patrick Burke, Eric Lodge, Bud Dillard, Cameron Forgie, Katherine Petrie, Jordan Sherman and William Hoffman.
