Disturbing the peace leads to arrest

A Ruston man was charged last week with disturbing the peace, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

A Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s deputy responded to an address on Second Street in reference to a disturbance. When the deputy arrived, the suspect, Robert Grigsby, displayed signs of being intoxicated. Grigsby was having trouble standing and slurring his words while being questioned about the disturbance.

During the deputy’s investigation, Grigsby became more agitated and irate and began yelling curse words to a group of people across the street. The deputy requested Grigsby to stop yelling curse words, but Grigsby continued to do so. The deputy then placed Grigsby under the arrest for disturbing the peace. After being placed under arrest, Grigsby was searched, and 1.9 grams of suspected marijuana was located in his pockets. He was then booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
