An altercation disrupted the graduation ceremony of Charlotte High School at the Charlotte County Sports Park in Port Charlotte. The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office reported that around 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, officers responded to a disturbance in the upper seats of the stadium involving two men, with 36-year-old Ha’akim Amir Johnson.

Officers intervened and escorted Johnson towards the main gate as he claimed his teenage daughter was on her way. Another individual exited the gate, leading to a verbal altercation between him and Johnson, escalating to threats of violence.

Johnson charged at the individual, removing his shirt and taking a fighting stance despite verbal commands from officers. Consequently, he was tased and arrested.

Johnson now faces charges of conspiring to disrupt an educational process and resisting arrest without violence.
