Domestic disturbance call leads to arrest 

A Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s deputy responded to a call about a domestic disturbance which led to charges of domestic abuse battery, disturbing the peace, three counts of resisting an officer, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.  

The deputy responded to 210 Garr Road the evening of Dec. 23 and talked to an individual who said that Jermaine O. Williams, 30, of Ruston, and another male were separated inside the residence. When WIlliams came out of the residence, the deputy noted he was highly agitated and began to get into a verbal argument with the woman.  

The deputy attempted to place Williams in restraints, and Williams pulled away. When Williams was handcuffed, deputies attempted to search him, and Williams became combative and actively resisted deputies. He forcefully pushed and twisted his body away as to escape custody while yelling. 

Williams continued resisting and then stated that something was burning. At this point, he lunged away from deputies. Deputies controlled Williams’ body and completed the search. He was then placed in the back of a patrol unit. 

The two individuals inside the residence said the female was doing Willams’ laundry, and he became agitated and pushed her. The male intervened while the female grabbed a knife in self-defense. The female stated Williams was on methamphetamine, and due to his erratic behavior, she was afraid to be around him.  

Deputies found a backpack belonging to Williams and found methamphetamine and a glass smoking pipe. Williams was taken to the parish detention center and booked on the charges listed above.
