KPVI is learning more about the man Pocatello Police arrested after he was filming the FBI building in Pocatello.

Sean Johnson was actually charged with ‘Resisting or Obstructing Officers,’ which is a misdemeanor in Idaho, but it’s not the first time he was charged with this offense.

Back in July of last year he was also charged with ‘Resisting or Obstructing Officers.’

That charge was amended to a ‘Disturbing the Peace,’ which is a misdemeanor he plead guilty to.

On Monday KPVI put in a written request for the police report.

Despite what typically would be a public record, the City of Pocatello denied KPVI’s request due to an ongoing investigation.

KPVI also tried to talk to Pocatello City attorneys about the case, but the city of Pocatello says that ‘city policy’ says attorneys can’t comment on pending cases.

KPVI also talked to family members of the Pocatello Police officer involved and they tell KPVI that they have had threats made against them and their home address has been put out there on social media and they have had to take steps to try and protect their family.
