According to police, Johnson broke away from officers as he was being handcuffed last Friday near Cannon Street.
   
Police said Johnson then entered the river and disappeared under water. Nearly 40 minutes later, he was pulled from the water by a fire department dive team and had been hospitalized in critical condition and undergoing treatment for respiratory impairment.
