Incident Date10/15/2019 - 3:04 PM
Address2033 Londonderry Dr. (MPD North District station)
DetailsMPD officers do carry medical kits, and the first responders often provide aid to injured people; however, our district stations – while they do have waiting areas for you to relax - are not medical facilities. It should also be pointed out that Det. Deon Johnson is not Dr. Deon Johnson, although the prefix before his name does obviously start with a "D."
This setup is to establish a situation that arose at the North District Tuesday afternoon. A man entered the lobby needing help, and Det. Johnson responded. The man advised he had fallen a while back, received stitches, and requested Det. Johnson's assistance in removing them. He also showed the investigator his injury, before unlocking his cellphone, so Johnson could see the screen, as the man believed it would verify his appointment. Indeed it did. He was scheduled for 3:00 p.m., on Tuesday, at a dental office. The detective, who by this time was noticing a strong odor of alcohol, called for a couple of patrol officers to take over in the lobby. The officers also tried to convince the man that he had come to a police station, and that they were not about to remove stitches, even though he continued to insist that they do. Upon further questioning, he admitted driving to the North District, something that was confirmed by surveillance images. The visitor ended up being cited for drunken driving. A family member picked him up, and off he went, without his car, still with his stitches, and having missed a dental appointment.
