The incident unfolded when officers attempted to conduct a routine traffic stop, and Johnson, identified as the driver, fled the scene. What ensued was a brief but intense pursuit that came to an abrupt halt when Johnson leaped from the moving vehicle, causing it to collide with a privacy fence.

Xavier Johnson now faces multiple charges including:

  • - Possession with intent to distribute a Schedule One narcotic
  • - Resisting an officer
  • - Hit-and-run driving
  • - Reckless operation of a vehicle
  • - Simple property damage
  • - Aggravated flight from a vehicle

Fortunately, no serious injuries were reported as a result of this incident.
