Eric William Johnson Wiki – Eric William Johnson Biography

A Homosassa, Florida man was arrested after posing as a Citrus County officer and holding a couple at gunpoint during a home invasion. The Citrus County Sheriff’s Office said 32-year-old Eric William Johnson was driven to a residence on July 19 by Maynard David Selvog, and when they arrived, Johnson exited the vehicle with an AR-15-style rifle that turned out to be an “Air-Soft” rifle.

After getting out of the vehicle, Johnson knocked on a trailer door and allegedly yelled, “Citrus County Sheriff’s Department.” He told the victims to get out of the caravan while he pointed the rifle at them, and believing him to be a lawman, they complied.

Johnson continued to hold the two victims at gunpoint, the sheriff’s office said, and at one point the victim attempted to call 911, though Johnson took the phone from her. As soon as Johnson was distracted, the male victim ran to a nearby house for help and told police that he noticed Selvog sitting in the driver’s seat of an SUV that was parked near the road.
