A vehicle backfiring in the Goldonna community on Friday evening has led to the arrest of a Bossier Parish man on several outstanding criminal arrest warrants, felony drug charges and the seizure of illegal narcotics according to Natchitoches Parish Sheriff Victor Jones Jr.
On Friday evening November 25th at approximately 8:40pm, Deputies assigned to the NPSO Patrol Division responded to reports of a black Ford pickup truck with overhead lights allegedly firing rounds from the vehicle while traveling on the Goldonna Road in Goldonna, La.
Deputies arrived in the area and while speaking with concerned residents were told they allegedly heard what appeared to be thirty-two shots fired from the vehicle.
Deputies began patrolling the area and shortly thereafter observed and stopped the 1999 Ford F-350 truck on Rice Road in Goldonna.
Deputies say while speaking with the driver of the vehicle and informing him of the complaint he identified himself as D. Keeney, handing them a La. Identification Card.
The driver reportedly informed deputies that he had been working on the vehicle and it was constantly backfiring.
A computer check revealed that Keeney’s driver’s license was suspended.
Deputies obtained permission to search the vehicle and no weapons were found.
Deputies then had the driver reproduce the backfiring which confirmed his story of the vehicle malfunction.
Deputies then began to look at the identification card and noticed the ID photo and driver did not match which led them to believe criminal activity existed.
As the investigation progressed, deputies asked the driver what his real name was in which he then identified himself as M. Johnson, he stated he was sorry and wanted in Shreveport on warrants.
Deputies still didn’t think the subject was being truthful, and placed him under arrest for Resisting an Officer by giving false information.
Deputies say while transporting the subject to the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center he told them again that he had some things to tell them, and then identified himself as Chad Everett Johnson.
A local warrants check revealed outstanding warrants on Johnson in Natchitoches and Bossier Parishes .
After arriving at the Natchitoches Detention Center, deputies asked Johnson if he had any illegal items on his person? He responded, that he had approximately one-gram of methamphetamine concealed in his underwear which he removed and handed deputies for evidence.
As a result, Chad Everett Johnson, 42, of the 3500 block of Bellview Road, Haughton, La. was booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center charged with Resisting an Officer by giving False Information, Expired Drivers License, Possession of CDS II Methamphetamines-2nd Offense, Failure to Appear in the Tenth Judicial District Court on 9-14-16 for Possession of CDS II, CDS IV, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia , along with Criminal Damage to Property, Theft of a Motor Vehicle, Theft, and Criminal Obstruction of Justice.
Johnson is also wanted in Bossier Parish for No Drivers License.

The vehicle was impounded.
Deputies R. Ross, Reserve Deputy R. Griffin and N. Brown made the arrest.
