ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - A man accused of firing shots at a New Mexico State Police officer, has been ordered to remain behind bars pending trial. A judge determined 32-year-old Johnny Black poses a flight-risk and is a danger to the community.
According to a criminal complaint, Black fired multiple shots at a State Police officer on June 25 after taking off from a traffic stop.
He was arrested on the Santa Ana Pueblo July 11 and then handed over to the FBI. This happened just a day after Crime Stoppers offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to his capture.
Black has been charged with assault with a dangerous weapon with intent to do bodily harm.
If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of ten years in federal prison.
Black is also accused of firing shots at a Rio Arriba County deputy one week prior to this incident.
