Two D.C. Public Schools police officers were arrested on bribery charges in a scheme to force a businessman to kick back proceeds from a parking operation, according to documents filed in federal court.
Shawn Maurice Johnson, 38, and Shawn Bertram Armstead, 37, are accused of threatening to close down a parking business unless the operator paid them 25 percent of his profits, documents said. While Johnson explained how the arrangement would work, Armstead drew out his baton, expanded and tapped it “threateningly,” according to the documents.
