Ah, hell, why not?
Vol football players stick together.
When a woman accused A.J. Johnson of rape, teammate Geraldo Orta stood by him.
When another teammate helped Johnson’s accuser call police, Orta called that teammate a traitor.
Four years later, Orta’s traded his helmet and pads for a police badge and uniform.
Orta entered the Knoxville Police Department’s academy three years after the rape accusations against teammates A.J. Johnson and Michael Williams. He’s assigned to the KPD Teleserve desk, where he takes reports and draws a salary of $39,922.21 per year, city records show.
That ought to come in handy at some point.
