Johnson reportedly grabbed the woman by the hair, held a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her.

The owner of the apartment stopped Johnson and pushed him out of the door.

Johnson then broke a window to the neighbor’s apartment and police were called.

He was arrested and charged with domestic aggravated assault.

Johnson was taken to the Washington County Detention Center, where he was being held on $50,000 bond.

He was scheduled to be arraigned in Sessions Court Thursday.
