Disturbance at Zaxby’s leads to arrest

A man who was attempting to fight fellow employees and resisted officers was arrested at Zaxby’s on Dec. 2. 

Jerimiah Mayfield, 21, of Ruston, was charged with resisting an officer by force or violence, resisting an officer by providing false information and disturbing the peace. 

Ruston Police Department officers received a call about a worker causing a disturbance. When officers arrived, the other employees pointed to Mayfield as the individual causing the disturbance. Mayfield stated to officers that he was going to leave then, but officers said he could not. Mayfield started backing away as officers announced their intention to restrain him, but Mayfield refused numerous times. 

After a struggle, Mayfield was restrained. Mayfield then told officers that his name was not Jerimiah Mayfield but gave officers a false name. Mayfield later refused to give his date of birth. Mayfield continued to resist arrest by pulling away from officers until backup arrived.  

Mayfield also had two Ruston City Court warrants.
