Disturbance results in arrest


A Ruston man was arrested Thursday afternoon after he allegedly assaulted another man and damaged his vehicle.

Justin Davis, 32, was arrested after Ruston Police officers responded to a Brewster Avenue residence.

The victim told officers Davis became so upset, he began striking him. Officers saw several scratches on the victim’s arm. As an officer was interviewing the victim, Davis aggressively screamed and yelled at the victim in the front yard. Davis was told several times to be quiet but became so irate he was placed under arrest.

Davis refused to be handcuffed, and a Taser was displayed to gain his compliance. As other officers arrived, Davis pulled away aggressively and had to be restrained.

The victim also said Davis grabbed his keys and scratched his vehicle during the altercation.

Davis was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for domestic abuse battery, simple criminal damage to property, disturbing the peace, and resisting an officer.
