No one really knows what kind of party Brian Lee Johnson had in mind until Alaska State Troopers were dispatched to the North Pole, Alaska region early Friday morning, the day of Johnson’s 41st birthday.
After a report of shots being fired came in to troopers around 6:30am, responding officers located Johnson and determined him to be a convicted felon in possession of a stolen handgun and a controlled substance. According to the dispatch records, Johnson fired the stolen handgun in the direction of a neighboring home, this after the accused was found guilty of second-degree weapons misconduct and third-degree assault for firing a gun at a building back in 2008.
In addition to being charged with second-and third-degree weapons misconduct, second-degree theft of a firearm and fourth-degree possession of a controlled substance, he was also charged with taking a moose during a closed season and without a valid hunting license.
Newsminer.com reported that Johnson began to admit guilt for methamphetamine possession, but denied possessing a firearm or shooting a moose.
“I do not know where the heck this gun came from that they allegedly found,” Johnson said.
Johnson’s arraignment continues today for the charge of shooting a moose.
