From Franklinton Police
On Tuesday, the Franklinton Police Department responded to the Fairground Apartment Complex regarding a disturbance where a subject was observed breaking windows of a vehicle.
Upon officers arrival, the complainant advised her boyfriend, 24-year-old Donshay Dyson broke the windows of her vehicle.
After the subsequent investigation, the complaint stated she did not want to pursue criminal charges.
The suspect was observed by officers to have several lacerations to his arm. He refused medical treatment and cursed at officers during the interaction.
Officers attempted to diffuse the situation and advised the complainant accordingly with regard to filing charges. The officers departed the scene without further incident.
A short time later, officers were called back to the apartments because the subject continued to cause a disturbance and was observed driving erratically, endangering several children who were playing in the area.
Officers again made contact with Dyson and attempted to place him under arrest. Dyson ignored the officers orders and then violently resisted arrest. Dyson committed a battery on the officers and was subsequently tazed after a brief foot pursuit. Dyson was eventually taken into custody but only after he headbutted one of the officers in the face.
Dyson was transported to Riverside Medical Center where he underwent treatment for the lacerations to his arm before being turned over to the Washington Parish Jail.
Dyson was charged with:
1st Offense DWI,
Reckless Operation of a motor vehicle,
No driver's license,
2 counts Child restraint,
Resisting an officer,
2 counts Battery on a police officer, hate crimes, criminal damage to property, simple burglary and disturbing the peace.
