- A prominent activist with the anti-police extremist group “Stop Cop City” was arrested and charged last week in Georgia after he allegedly stole a vehicle, crashed into other vehicles, then ran from the scene, according to authorities.
Matthew V. Johnson, 33, of Atlanta, Georgia has been charged with theft by taking, reckless driving, and hit-and-run, jail records show.
Johnson is accused of stealing a Mercedes-Benz from Express Oil Change and Tire Engineers on Sept. 29. He then went on a rampage and crashed the stolen vehicle into multiple vehicles before running from the scene. Police were able to catch up to Johnson and took him into custody, according to WSB-TV.
