Victimless Crime File: Stoner Moron Doors Cop, Gets Tasered and Mauled
Nathaniel Johnson is a pot smoker. From the mugshot above I assume he had partaken in the drug prior to being arrested. Stories like this expose the lie of the mellow pot smoker who doesn’t act in irrational and dangerous ways:
Deputies said that Lt. Tim Ridgeway was traveling on West Blue Ridge Drive at about 10 p.m. when he witnessed a tree fall on the roadway, trapping three vehicles. They said Ridgeway blocked traffic using his patrol car and assisted the occupants of the trapped cars.
Investigators said that about two hours later, while Ridgeway still had the roadway blocked, a vehicle driven by 32-year-old Nathaniel Johnson II, of Greenville, ignored Ridgeway’s instructions to turn around. They said Johnson drove over limbs and debris, opened his car door and hit Ridgeway, knocking him into the tree.
Deputies said Ridgeway told dispatches what Johnson’s vehicle looked like, and another deputy working in the area spotted a car matching that description. They said when the deputy pulled Johnson’s car over, Johnson jumped out of the car and fled.
Johnson led the deputy on a brief chase, before falling in a nearby ditch, deputies said. They said Johnson was reaching for something in his pocket, and the deputy told him to put his hands behind his back. They said Johnson ignored the deputy’s command and the deputy shocked Johnson with a Taser.
Investigators said Johnson was shocked with the Taser two more times before backup arrived. They said that when other deputies arrived a K-9 was used to gain control of Johnson.
Which is a polite way of saying Johnson needed to be mauled by a German Shepard before cops could get him under control. He’s being charged with attempted murder and cocaine trafficking, but also possession of marijuana. As in he was found with a personal stash of weed on him.
But you know, if only drugs were legal this guy would be completely law abiding and never would have attacked anyone. Right?
