Samuel “Two-Fifty” Johnson was pulled over on November 4, 2013 by Springfield Police Officers Jeffrey Coker and Andrew Barnes -Officers who have worked with the Springfield Police Department Street Crimes Unit.  According to the Police report, Johnson was pulled over for failing to signal for 100 feet before the vehicle switched lanes from the right lane to the left lane.

The report goes on to state that Officer Coker made contact with Johnson, and Johnson immediately began challenging the probable cause of the traffic stop.  In the midst of that traffic stop, Johnson confirmed to WICS News Channel 20 that he was indeed recording Officer Coker and was threatened to be arrested (Click here to see WICS News Channel 20′s Story).  After the citation was written, Officer Coker asked Johnson to step out of the vehicle so the citation could be issued and to allow a Springfield Police K9 dog to perform a free air sniff.  The police report goes on to state that Officer Coker explained that he could order Mr. Johnson out of the vehicle and Mr. Johnson had to comply with the order or be arrested.  Mr. Johnson was asked by Officer Coker if he was refusing to exit the vehicle and Johnson stated, “YES.”  Mr. Johnson was then placed under arrest for resisting a peace officer.

Today, Johnson has confirmed that the Sangamon County States Attorneys office has dismissed charges of resisting a peace officer.  Johnson was represented by Springfield Attorney D Peter Wise of the Gates, Wise, Schlosser & Goebel law firm.

***Senator Andy Manar did not have any influence in the dismissal of Johnson’s charges.
