NATCHITOCHES PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

A proper tuneup might have kept a Bossier Parish man out of the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center.

Instead, the backfiring of his black Ford pickup disrupted the peace and quiet of a Friday evening and alarmed residents of the small village of Goldonna so much that they called the law.

Someone was driving down Goldonna Road firing a gun, they told authorities. One caller alleged to have heard 32 shots fired.

That was about 9 p.m. Nov. 25.

Deputies found and searched the truck. No firearms were found.

Its driver said he had been working on the pickup and even demonstrated how it was backfiring.

But authorities said he misidentified himself - not once, but twice. That's where his troubles began.

First, he said his name is D. Keeney. 

A check of his driver's license revealed it had been suspended. 

Then deputies looked closer at the Louisiana identification card he had provided and realized the photo did not match the driver. That raised their suspicions.

He apologized and said his real name is M. Johnson and told deputies there were warrants for his arrest in Shreveport.

Deputies, who still didn't believe him, then arrested him on a charge of resisting an officer by giving false information.

During the ride to the detention center, the man again told deputies he had some things to tell them and this time identified himself as Chad Everette Johnson.

A subsequent check revealed there were warrants for the arrest of 42-year-old Chad Everette Johnson, of the 3500 block of Bellview Road in Haughton.

He was wanted in Natchitoches Parish for failing to appear on drug charges Sept. 14 in Natchitoches District Court.

Bossier Parish authorities wanted him for having no driver's license.

After arriving at the detention center, deputies asked Johnson if he had any illegal items. That's when he told them about the gram or so of methamphetamine hidden in his underwear.

As a result, Johnson's truck was impounded and he was booked into the detention center on 2 counts of simple criminal damage to property and 1 count each of:

  • second-offense possession of methamphetamine,
  • failure to appear in court on charges of possession of Schedule II and Schedule IV Controlled Dangerous Substances,
  • criminal obstruction of justice,
  • theft, and,
  • motor vehicle theft
  • resisting an officer by giving false information,
  • having an expired driver's license, and,
  • possession of drug paraphernalia.
