A Ruston man faces charges of simple assault, resisting an officer and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia after the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to a call concerning threats being made on Wednesday evening.
En route a responding deputy was advised that the suspect also had an active bench warrant through the LPSO.
Derrick Deon Pastor, 29, was arrested after allegedly threatening a female at the residence and throwing things around the home.
The complainant reportedly told the responding deputy that Pastor “is bad off on drugs” and told her “I’ll bust your head in” and “If you call police, you’re going down.”
Pastor’s arrest affidavit says that after a deputy requested him to step outside the residence, he became agitated, ignoring verbal commands to exit the house and instead yelling back and moving deeper back inside the home.
After back-up arrived on scene the LPSO deputies reported entering the residence and making contact with Pastor at the rear of the home.
Pastor’s arrest affidavit said he was then handcuffed and read his Miranda rights before being taken to a patrol unit and transported to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center before being booked.
Bond for Pastor was set at $11,000.
