After hit-and-runs, Alexandria Police capture suspect on foot on Interstate 95

A 34-year-old Maryland man is being held without bond after allegedly smashing his car into two others and then fleeing from police on foot across Interstate 95.

The incident occurred on Tuesday, June 21, at around 3:45 p.m. Police were called to the area of Duke Street and Early Street for a report of an injury resulting from a hit-and-run, and were told that the suspect’s Nissan Altima had rear end damage, according to a search warrant affidavit.

Police located the suspect, Allen Johnson, nearby and trying to fix the damage to his car.

“Johnson entered the vehicle and drove east along Duke Street, exiting onto Telegraph (Road) and then (Interstate) 95,” police said in the search warrant affidavit. “The driver ignored (the officer’s) emergency lights and sirens and refused to stop, swerving between lanes, nd randomly applying brakes before fleeing at a high rate of speed.”

Another officer then found the vehicle on the southbound local lanes of I-95 — after hitting another vehicle. As the officer arrived on scene, Johnson allegedly fled on foot.

“Your affiant observed Johnson walking sourhbound on the highway in the southbound thru lanes,” police said in the search warrant affidavit. “He then hopped the jersey wall, crossed a grassy median, then hopped another jersey wall and continued southbound in the northbound thru lanes. Your affiant took him into custody in the middle lane.”

Police said Johnson was unsteady on his feet, had slurred speech and had marijuana shake in one of his pockets.

“When asked if he drank or took drugs today, he replied, ‘You’ll find out,'” police said in the search warrant affidavit.

Johnson was charged with two counts of hit-and-run resulting in injury and driving while intoxicated. He goes to court for the offenses on August 2.
