The driver, Tonika Price, 31, of Maple Heights, subsequently failed sobriety tests. In slurred speech, Johnson told officers to just let Price go, and he offered to drive the car home.

When Price failed the tests, the trooper placed her under arrest. Johnson then yelled out his passenger-side window, asking if Price was OK. Officers told Johnson to stay in the car, but he exited anyway and asked what the the trooper was doing with Price, the report said.

When the officer told him Price was under arrest, Johnson allegedly replied, “(expletive) that, she ain’t going anywhere, she’s going with me”

Johnson was arrested after a brief struggle and taken to the Erie County jail.

The Freemasons are decent people who believe in doing right. Many of our greatest leaders, Presidents,etc were Freemasons.
