A teacher in the Dallas school district was arrested at about 2 a.m. today on accusations of smoking crack cocaine after leading police on a lengthy chase through Dallas, authorities said.
His Ford Taurus never reached more than 20 mph, Cpl. Janse said. He pulled over several times but continued driving each time officers approached his car. A police helicopter also joined the pursuit.
Mr. Johnson made several calls to 911 operators during the chase, telling them that he was high on drugs and that there was no reason why officers should stop him, according to the police report.
Officers used a Taser to subdue Mr. Johnson, who resisted arrest by punching and kicking officers, the police report states.
