FBI Agent Suspected in Drunk Driving Death

Law enforcement identified Adrian Norbell Johnson as the FBI agent suspected of drunk driving in a fatal accident in Maryland Monday night, Fox News TV reported Thursday.

The 37-year-old agent was driving with a blood alcohol content of .25 when 18-year-old Lawrence “JR” Garner, Jr. was killed on North Key Road in Brandywine around 10 p.m. Monday, police said. That blood alcohol level is three times the legal limit.

Johnson has been with the FBI for six years and had recently been hired to work on Attorney General Eric Holder’s security detail. He had not yet started the job. His most recent assignment was at the FBI field office in Newark, N.J.

“It’s a very high level of intoxication,” Corporal Evan Baxter of Prince George’s County Police told Fox. “At a .20, you’re definitely looking at impaired speech. You’re talking about possibly losing the ability to stand or walk. There’s certainly an impairment of judgment.”

The passenger in the car, Robert Mitchell II is at the Intensive Care Unit at Prince George’s Hospital Center.

Johnson has not yet returned to work since the crash and his future with the FBI remains uncertain.
