Johnson is facing charges of aggravated assault of a uniformed police officer, resisting arrest (passive resistance) and disorderly conduct, according to a police report obtained by NFL Media from the Tempe Police Department.
As an associate of Johnson was being arrested in front of Zuma Grill, Johnson and other associates allegedly were interfering with the investigation by yelling over the officers while they were trying to conduct their interviews of the bar staff.
Johnson was asked multiple times by police officers to back up, refused and was given contact to the chest by an officer. It was then that Johnson allegedly struck the officer hard enough to knock him backward.
Johnson was then told by police he was under arrest at approximately 2:05 a.m. PT for assaulting a police officer. The police report further states that "approximately four officers attempted to detain Johnson and he was taken to the ground." Johnson finally became compliant to the arrest at this point.
According to the report, Johnson "appeared intoxicated as his eyes were bloodshot and watery."
The 24-year-old agreed to a portable breath test, registering a .101 BrAC at 3:30 a.m.
