Man arrested for murder of his father


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – A 30-year-old man is in custody for the alleged murder of his father, and attacking his mother.

Lt. Sidney Allen said officers were called to a home on the 11000 block of Doe Run Drive about an assault. When officers arrived the front door was open.

Officers entered the home and saw the suspect, Sean Johnson, standing in the kitchen unarmed. He was commanded to get down, and when he did he was placed under arrest. However, when they were trying to remove him from the home, police said he became uncooperative, throwing his weight around and struggling with officers. Police said Sean had to be tased in order to get him to comply.
