Trion Man Arrested in Floyd County

A Trion man was arrested in Floyd County this past week for posting online threats towards his father, and then allegedly traveling to his father’s home with firearms.

Floyd County Police say that forty-eight-year-old Walter Craig Johnson posted threats aimed at his father on Facebook.  He then had two firearms in his possession when he was apprehended by law enforcement, who say that he was going to his father’s house on Abrams Road, southeast of Rome.

Johnson’s online threat that was aimed at his father reportedly said that his father “would pay.”

Johnson has been charged with two counts of simple assault and terroristic threats and acts.
