Trespasser arrested at convenience store

Ruston Police arrested a woman Saturday after she allegedly returned to a location after she had been forbidden to enter.

An officer responded to the EZ Mart on South Farmerville Street and told Dorrissa Reynolds, 37, that she had been previously barred from the property and if she returned, she would be arrested for trespassing. The store later called police to report Reynolds had returned to the property.

Reynolds was placed under arrest and as officers attempted to handcuff her and escort her to a patrol car, she kept pulling away by pushing backwards with her legs. Once officers were able to place her in the back seat, she would not place her feet inside the car and officers had to physically place her feet inside.

When the patrol car reached the Lincoln Parish Detention Center, Reynolds would not exit the vehicle and had to be removed by officers. She was booked for criminal trespassing and resisting an officer. Bail was set at $1,000.
