KNOXVILLE - Tennessee linebacker A.J. Johnson will have all charges stemming from a Feb. 9 party dropped in 90 days if he fulfills terms of an agreement reached Friday.

Johnson's charge of resisting arrest was dismissed Friday. Johnson must perform 24 hours of community service, pay court costs and have good conduct to have a charge of purchasing alcohol for a person underage dropped in 90 days.

Tennessee defensive lineman Danny O'Brien and former linebacker Dontavis Sapp made similar deals Thursday. They'll have all charges in connection with the party dropped in six months if they perform community service, pay court costs, have good conduct and submit to alcohol assessment.

Sapp, who already had one charge dismissed Thursday, has 32 hours of community service. O'Brien has 40 hours of community service.
