Deputy Johnson was killed while responding to a domestic disturbance call. His patrol car was run off the road by a drunk driver and hit a tree. The drunk driver fled the scene but was later apprehended. However, the grand jury declined to indict the suspect. The man was arrested and convicted of a later arson in which several firefighters were injured.
Deputy Johnson was survived by his wife and two sons.
