MOM SAYS SECURITY GUARD ACCUSED OF EXCESSIVE FORCE HAD REQUESTED TRANSFER

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A security guard accused of using excessive force on a homeless man appeared in court on Thursday.

Michael Johnson, 23, was arraigned in Sacramento County court. Johnson was appointed a public defender during his arraignment.

The victim remains in critical condition with life-threatening injuries.

“This is the end result for something; had he been patrolling another site, he wouldn’t be here,” said Shirelle Williams, Johnson’s mother.

Her son is behind bars, but she says he’s not the one to blame. Williams says her son quit his security job two weeks ago because he felt unsafe at work.
