Wanted woman resists deputy

A Simsboro woman allegedly resisted arrest when a Lincoln Parish deputy took her into custody Sunday.

A deputy went to a Eubanks Road residence early Sunday morning to investigate an assault complaint. A record check showed Kristin D. Swain, 30, of that address was wanted on two warrants from Third District Court.

When Swain was informed of the warrants, she retreated from the deputy and got behind her husband in an attempt to avoid arrest. The deputy tried to move around the husband who attempted to stall him. 

After mediating for a few moments, the deputy was able to grab Swain’s wrist and handcuff it. Swain pulled away but she was eventually restrained and taken into custody.

Swain was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center on warrants for failure to appear in court for sale of alcohol to persons under 21 and possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance. She was also charged with resisting an officer.
