After his car is egged, Pacific County deputy ends up with egg on his face

The Associated Press

RAYMOND, Pacific County — A sheriff’s deputy has been charged with reckless driving, extortion and other offenses in connection with a high-speed chase in April after his vehicle was egged in front of his home in Raymond.

According to Lewis County Prosecutor Jonathan Meyer, who is handling the case, Deputy Vance Johnson chased the other vehicle through town at speeds above 75 mph. About three weeks later, Johnson is accused of confronting one of the egg throwers at their home, in uniform and in a Pacific County sheriff’s vehicle.

KXRO Radio reports Johnson has been charged with one count of first degree extortion, four counts of bribery, five counts of reckless endangerment, and one count of reckless driving.

The 44-year-old is a five-year veteran of the Pacific County sheriff’s office
