Dorian Johnson appears in court for obstructing arrest charge

ST. LOUIS (AP) – The friend who was with Michael Brown last summer when the unarmed Brown was shot and killed by a Ferguson police officer has made his first court appearance on a misdemeanor charge stemming from an unrelated incident.

Dorian Johnson appeared briefly Monday on the charge of resisting arrest or interfering with a lawful stop or detention. He is due back in court July 13.

Prosecutors allege the 23-year-old Johnson tried to hinder the May 6 arrest of his younger brother.

Johnson and Brown were walking in a Ferguson street last August when white officer Darren Wilson confronted them. Wilson shot and killed Brown following a scuffle.

Brown’s death led to months of sometimes-violent protests and spawned a national “Black Lives Matter” movement seeking changes in how police deal with minorities.
