Challenging a restraining order ended up with a Lincoln Parish man being charged on multiple counts.
Benjamin Tyler, 38, of Calhoun is facing counts of violation of a restraining order, entry on or remaining in places after being forbidden and resisting an officer.
Tyler’s arrest affidavit says that Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched Thursday concerning a restraining order that didn’t expire until May 6 of 2022. The restraining order was reported to be issued on the grounds of domestic violence.
The arresting deputy said that upon making contact with the suspect, he was restrained in handcuffs and given his Miranda rights, which the suspect said he understood.
Tyler then reported admitted being on the property despite the restraining order and was charged. It was also reportedly determined at the time Tyler had two bench warrants against him.
He was then transported to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
