[ARCHIVED] CPD arrests man on three charges following early-morning standoff

Police

The Columbus Police Department on March 8th arrested a man for Disturbing the Peace, First-Degree Criminal Trespass and Obstruction of a Police Animal.

At approximately 1:12 a.m. on March 8th, CPD officers were dispatched to 1451 21st Ave. in reference to a male subject that entered the residence without permission. The subject was identified as 35-year-old Daniel D. Johnson. 

Officers determined that Johnson did not have permission to be inside the residence. While on scene, officers reported Johnson could be heard yelling and screaming from inside the residence.

Johnson, who had recent arrests for assault and resisting arrest, was instructed by officers to exit the residence in attempt to de-escalate the situation. According to officers, Johnson refused all instructions to exit the residence. Due to what police called "his erratic behavior and continued disturbance of the neighborhood," a search warrant was obtained. Police soon evacuated neighboring residents due to the nature of situation.

At approximately 4:30 a.m., Johnson was informed of the search warrant and instructed to exit the residence on his own. Three more warnings were given to Johnson announcing that a search warrant would be served and a Police Service Dog would be used to effect the arrest. Officers on scene said Johnson continued to be non-compliant and refused to exit the residence. 

At about 4:37 a.m., Johnson was taken into custody with the assistance of PSD Eros and the CPD drone operators. Johnson was medically cleared at the Columbus Community Hospital for minor injuries sustained from a dog bite. Johnson was housed at the Platte County Detention Center.
