    A grand jury indicted an FBI agent in a fatal February crash, according to the Prince George’s County state’s attorney.

    Adrian Norvell Johnson had a blood-alcohol level three times the legal limit when he collided with 18-year-old Lawrence Garner Jr. on Feb. 7, authorities said.

    After playing basketball with friends at Baden Recreational Center, Garner was driving south on N. Keys Drive in Brandywine when the northbound Johnson crossed into the southbound lanes, causing a head-on collision, authorities said. Garner was pronounced dead at an area hospital.

    Police believe Johnson also had been driving faster than the posted speed limit. He was off duty at the time.

    Johnson was indicted on nine counts of motor vehicle manslaughter, homicide by motor vehicle, driving while under the influence and reckless driving.
