Woman arrested after altercation

Lincoln Parish deputies arrested a woman Wednesday afternoon during an investigation of a trespassing incident.

Deputies responded to a White Lightning Road (La. 146) address where the victim stated Jessica S. Johnston, 37, just tried to hit her vehicle with a brick as she passed on the way home. The victim said Johnston had been trespassing on the property frequently, so they posted signs and told her not to return. 

While deputies were obtaining information, Johnston walked onto the property yelling at the victim. Johnston admitted to trespassing multiple times including earlier in the day Wednesday, as well as throwing a brick at the victim’s vehicle as it passed her house. 

Johnston was arrested and booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for criminal trespass and criminal mischief, both misdemeanors.
