Now, Johnson has been arrested by U.S Marshals, along with 32-year-old Cornelius Smith. This was confirmed by Fox 13 Memphis. Johnson was arrested in Indiana, on a first-degree murder charge.
Smith was also hit with a first-degree murder charge. The location of his arrest wasn’t revealed. Johnson has since maintained his innocence, despite authorities making it known that he’s dangerous, and involved in various crimes.
Dolph was gunned down in his hometown of Memphis, on November 17. This was while purchasing cookies at the popular Makeda’s Cookies location, in South Memphis.
