Police Office Michael Johnson resigned from the force following an incident in Hudson.
In March, a woman Johnson and his brother were with was arrested for allegedly purchasing heroin. Johnson was driving the car.
He was placed on unpaid suspension for 30 days and Internal Affairs began an investigation into the matter.
In 2012, Johnson was stabbed in the leg while on patrol near the Martin Luther King apartment complex. He said he stopped to talk to a group of three males who were acting suspiciously. Johnson was stabbed in the leg before the men fled and he did discharge his weapon. The men were never apprehended and the circumstances surrounding the stabbing remain under question.
The three men in question were never apprehended and while Johnson did fire multiple times at the fleeing suspects, he did not hit any of the suspects or anything else.
The military veteran who was involved in combat in Iraq, never backed off his story, however, and since police brass could not disprove it, they had no choice but to believe it.
That year, he won the "Officer Assaulted Award" for the Jan. 4 incident.
It remains unclear why Johnson wasn’t arrested along with the woman in Hudson.
