Fort Walton Beach, FL (April 24, 2019) – Police have arrested 18-year-old Kyle Makai Johnson this past weekend after he put his hands on a victim and battered a police officer.
Police say that the incident took place on Saturday when Johnson placed both of his hands on a victim and forced her to take a seat against her will. Police were called.
While there, officers started to investigate and Johnson lifted the body camera off of a police officer and touched his name badge, then poking him with a finger. The deputy told Johnson not to touch him but Johnson refused to listen.
Johnson then took an aggressive stance and stood in his face after he was told to sit. The deputy handcuffed Johnson but Johnson grabbed the deputy’s taser and refused to let go.
Johnson has since been arrested for domestic violence battery and battery on a law enforcement officer.
