Clearwater Man Out on Bail on Vehicular Homicide Charges Arrested Again After Allegedly Absconding


A man from Clearwater who is awaiting trial on charges for initiating a car crash that took the life of a school crossing guard was arrested on Friday after he allegedly fled from police while in possession of illegal drugs.

Julious Ramone Johnson is currently being held without bond in Pinellas County Jail and is facing charges of fleeing and eluding, felony driving with a revoked license, misdemeanor cannabis possession, two counts of child neglect, obstructing or resisting an officer without violence, felonious firearm possession, leaving the scene of a fatal crash, vehicular homicide, trafficking of cocaine, and habitually driving with a suspended or revoked license.

Pinellas County deputies say they spotted him just before ten o'clock Friday night driving a new Buick Regal with illegally-tinted windows. They further allege that the vehicle sped away when they attempted to pull it over, and that they did not engage in pursuit, opting to use a device to puncture the car's tires. Deputies say that the device succeeded in stopping the vehicle, and that they captured Johnson after a short foot pursuit.

According to police reports, Johnson said he attempted to flee because he didn't have a valid driver's license. The officers say that they discovered 33 grams of crack cocaine in his vehicle when they searched it.

Johnson was out on bond at the time of his latest arrest for allegedly crashing into a vehicle while speeding in May 2014. According to police the crash sent Johnson's vehicle into seventy-year-old school crossing guard and retired Clearwater PD officer Douglas Carey, mortally injuring him and less severely injuring Johnson's two adolescent daughters. He allegedly left the scene of that accident for the same reason that he was said by police to have given for Friday's events. Police say they found cannabis on his person when they captured him after the accident in 2014.
