Teen in brutality case arrested


Brandon Johnson, who claimed Indianapolis police officers used excessive force on him when a brother was arrested in May last year, is now under arrest himself. Johnson, 16, was arrested Wednesday night on charges of criminal gang activity and dangerous possession of a firearm. His two brothers were arrested on charges of criminal gang activity and possession of marijuana. The arrest warrant was actually intended for one of Johnson's brothers, but when police entered the home in the 7700 block of Mountain Spring Way on the city’s east side, they found a gun, bullets, drugs and gang paraphernalia.
