Drunken man charged with OVI, leaving scene of crash

Officers found Johnson about one third of a mile away, where he informed them two men were driving his truck — one named “Turd” and one named “S---” the report said. Turd was the alleged driver, Johnson told police, but he could not provide last names for the pair.

A drunken Sandusky man allegedly fled the scene of an accident he caused, and though he was found less than a mile away, continued to deny involvement.

Joshua Johnson, 23, 3900 block Venice Road, was charged with operating vehicle intoxicated, failure to control, leaving the scene of an accident, fictitious plates and driving under suspension.

It was just a few minutes before midnight on Monday when a Sandusky officer found Johnson’s severely damaged truck on Venice Road, according to a police report.

The officer quickly realized the license plates did not match the vehicle and tracked the truck’s trail to the 4600 block of Venice Heights Blvd., where the crash appeared to have occurred, the report said.

The truck had hit a curb then struck a street lamp and tree. There was also blood on the stick shift, the report said.

Officers found Johnson about one third of a mile away, where he informed them two men were driving his truck — one named “Turd” and one named “S---” the report said. Turd was the alleged driver, Johnson told police, but he could not provide last names for the pair.

Officers charged Johnson for the crash due to blood on his right hand (matching that found on the shifter), his proximity to the crash, and because he had the ignition key in his pocket, the report said.

He failed field sobriety tests, refused to submit to a breath test, and was released to a sober person.

Really Register? You thought THIS was newsworthy?

mimi's word

If it happened in the area why ISN'T news worthy? The Register just
can't win...if it only prints area news some one complains their head is in the sand. If the do larger stories people complain that it isn't from here...GEEEESH!

I think momx6 is complaining because turd and s--- are 2 of the 6.

This is possibly the brother of Jeremiah Johnson that hit a guy over the head with a whisky bottle. If it's not, I'm not apologizing. He's been getting into trouble since he was a kid. He gave my son's name when caught stealing once but the manager asked my husband if he was our son and of course, he said no and they finally got him to admit who he was.
