Intoxicated Subject Threatens Children With Firearm

On Saturday, June 24, 2017, at 8:48 p.m., numerous officers from Sioux Falls Police Department, South Dakota Highway Patrol, and Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of an intoxicated male that had threatened his children with a firearm in a northeast Sioux Falls neighborhood. The surrounding roads were shut down and a perimeter was established due to the initial information the subject was believed to still be inside a residence with several children. Information developed that the subject had left in a vehicle prior to law enforcement’s arrival and he was eventually located and arrested in Minnehaha County without incident. The involved children were all located; one had minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

Chad Allen Johnson was arrested and lodged at Minnehaha County Jail for Aggravated Assault Domestic, Simple Assault Domestic, and Possession of a Firearm While Intoxicated.
