Dorian Johnson, who, as Twitchy reported this morning, is suing the City of Ferguson and the police department claiming Officer Darren Wilson “targeted him without probable cause,” has been arrested, according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch crime reporter Christine Byers reports that Johnson is charged with resisting arrest, along with drug charges.
Police released details of an incident involving three men taken into custody after officers were called to the 5700 block of Acme Avenue at 3:21 p.m. Wednesday by someone “reporting a large group of subjects who were possibly armed with firearms.”
The police report did not name Johnson, but a police source who spoke on the condition of anonymity said that the incident involved Johnson and two of his brothers. Johnson allegedly had a cough medication mixed with what police believe to be an illegal narcotic on him.
The report said that as the officers who went to the scene dispersed the crowd, they noticed that one man had a bulge in his clothes that they suspected might be a weapon. A second man grabbed the arm of the officer who attempted to pat the first man down. The officer then attempted to detain the second man.
That prompted a third man to approach the officer and yell at him in an attempt to stop the arrest, the report said. That man allegedly then discarded narcotics onto the ground.
