Johnny Behan was a 19th century Human law enforcement officer. He was the sheriff of Tombstone, Arizona at the time of the shootout at the OK Corral on October 26, 1881. Behan was a friend of Ike Clanton and promised him amnesty in case he killed the Earps.

In 2268, Behan was part of a bizarre recreation of the duel created by the Melkot to execute Captain James T. Kirk and his landing party. (TOS: "Spectre of the Gun")

Johnny Behan was played by actor Bill Zuckert. The episode incorrectly depicts Behan as the "Tombstone Sheriff" when Behan was actually the Sheriff of Cochise County, Arizona, where Tombstone is located. Behan was also thirty seven years old when the OK gunfight took place, in comparison to actor Bill Zuckert who was fifty three when the episode was produced.
