Cottonwood Heights police have released the identity of a fugitive motorcyclist who allegedly shoved his son off his bike at a traffic stop and then sped away.
Cottonwood Heights police Sgt. Mark Askerlund said the incident occurred Tuesday when a motorcycle officer pulled over Brian E. Johnson, 42, of Millcreek, on suspicion of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The stop was made on 6400 South near 1300 East.
When the officer approached the man, he suddenly pushed his 13-year-old son off the rear of the seat of his bike, telling him to run as the father sped away, Askerlund said.
