Violation of protective order leads to arrest

Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office received a complaint call Tuesday that resulted in an arrest. 

An LPSO deputy received a call from dispatch from a female who said she had been receiving phone calls from Brandon Perry, 38, of Ruston, who is the defendant of a restraining order protecting the female who called dispatch.  

The female was on her cell phone at the time and received a call from Perry on her landline. She put her phone on speaker and allowed the officers to hear the call from Perry, who was speaking loudly and in a threatening manner. 

The complainant provided possible locations for Perry’s whereabouts, which led LPSO officers to determine that he was at the East Side Mini Mart on Martin Luther King Avenue. Sgt. Johnson verified the restraining order, which was issued in August 2015, with a non-expiring provision prohibiting contact with the complainant via telephone. 

Deputy Smith located Perry, who told the deputy that he had contacted the complainant and showed his cell phone log. Perry was arrested on a charge of violation of protective orders.
