Officers under investigation for striking accused drug dealer

When an undercover police officer told Richard Johnson that he was looking for "some white," his response was "Hey! I got that loud and I got that white," according to the arrest report.

Johnson thought he was in business, but he would later find himself claiming he was the victim of police brutality. The undercover officer met with Johnson on Ocean Drive and 10th Street. Police officers said Johnson agreed to sell them $80 bags, but they had to walk with him to Washington Avenue.

The undercover officers reported they saw Johnson, 26, walk to an apartment at 825 Euclid Ave. to get the drugs, and when he returned with the bag, an exchange was made. Officers rushed to arrest Johnson inside the Aladdin Smoke & Vapor Shop on Washington Avenue.

Johnson "quickly started to resist by tensing his arm and forcibly pulling away," the arrest report said.

Officers said Johnson was uncooperative and refused to comply with instructions, so they had to use force March 24 to deal with him. The Miami Beach Police Department launched an internal investigation to determine whether or not the officers used excessive force.

Police officers said Johnson bumped into a glass display, causing four glass hookahs to shatter. The damage was valued at some $800. When officers searched him, they found 7.6 grams of marijuana, .6 grams of cocaine and $255 in cash.

It reportedly took four officers to handcuff him outside the store.
