Accident Crash leads to Arrest in Montgomery County



A non-injury incident involving a semi lead to an arrest near Cherryvale.


Texas man, Douglas Johnson, crashed his 2016 Kenworth semi when traveling north on County Road 5700, he failed to navigate the sharp curve and came to a stop in the ditch. Deputies were dispatched to the crash, where they then attempted to contact the driver. Johnson became agitated with the deputies when they requested documents from him, so they could complete their accident investigation. After speaking with Johnson and explaining what documents they needed, Johnson went back to his semi and entered the cab. The deputies continued to request the documents, which eventually escalated into a physical altercation due to Johnson's lack of cooperation. The struggle lead to the injury of an officer and caused Johnson to be booked into the Montgomery County Department of Corrections. Johnson was booked on charges of battery against a law enforcement officer, interfering with law enforcement, theft, driving on the left side of the roadway, and no proof of liability insurance.
