Services are scheduled for an Atlanta police sergeant killed by a suspected drunken driver.

A wake for Sgt. Darrell D. Johnson will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Donald Trimble Mortuary in Decatur. The funeral will begin at 11 a.m. Thursday at Elizabeth Baptist Church in Atlanta.

The 18-year police officer was killed in a head-on collision early Friday as he headed home from working an off-duty job.

Police said the other driver, 21-year-old Brent E. Jacobs of Douglasville, is believed to have been driving under the influence when his car crossed the lane in front of Johnson's in south Fulton County. Jacobs also died in the crash.
