Woman fleeing officer runs into house

A Ruston woman was arrested Saturday after a local convenience store reported her erratic behavior while wearing only an undergarment. 

A Ruston police officer responded to the Grab It convenience store at 310 S. Farmerville Street. Courtney Dennis, 27, of Ruston, was found in the parking lot. She attempted to flee, and the officer directed her to stop but she refused. Dennis was followed to an Arizona Avenue address where she ran inside and locked the door.

The residents of the home stated they did not know Dennis and did not invite her into the house. She was found hiding in the attic and was arrested.

A Grab It employee said Dennis had climbed the sign outside the store, and after being told to get off the side she climbed the sign again. 

Dennis was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for disturbing the peace, resisting an officer, and unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling.
