In an affidavit for Johnson's arrest, police said they were called to a strip mall just east of Calvary Cemetery at 40th and O streets just before 2:30 a.m. about a Honda Accord that hit a light pole. 

An officer noticed Johnson had red eyes and saw an open whiskey bottle on the middle console.

Police arrested him after a search turned up nearly 2 ounces of meth, roughly an ounce of marijuana and a tomahawk in a backpack, in addition to a digital scale, baggies and seven cellphones, police said.
