A call concerning a suspicious person at Lincoln Parish Park resulted in a Calhoun man facing a charge of violating a protective order.
Upon arriving at the park a Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Officer deputy reported making contact with park security, who gave the deputy a description of a person wearing a red shirt and gray shorts standing beside a parked car in the playground area.
The deputy then reported making contact with the individual matched the description he was given as well as a female with a child. The deputy said he then identified the female by a valid Louisiana identification card and Bradley Phillips, 46, by the birth name and social security number he provided.
Upon running Phillips’ name through the LPSO database the deputy determined that Phillips had an active order of protection issued by the Louisiana Supreme Court for domestic violence against the female he was found with that doesn’t expire until Aug. 26, 2022. Further records search found that Phillips had already been reported to violating the protective order four times previously.
Phillips was then reportedly read his Miranda rights and transported to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
No bond was reported to have been set for Phillips as of Tuesday night.
