Officer’s Narrative:
[Please note: The following is a direct transcription from the officer’s narrative report. We do not fix any spelling or grammatical errors. Any changes made by our staff are placed inside brackets. Some errors may exist.]

On 5/28/22 at 0715 hrs I was dispatched to 800 Tupelo TRL (James Brown Park) in reference to a suspicious person.

I arrived on scene and made contact with David West who stated he had insulted two women that were walking by him.

I made contact with [VICTIM #1] and [VICTIM #2] who stated they had been walking at James Brown Park when Mr. West began approaching them while punching his fist into his other hand while stating, “I am going to f*ck you up.”

Mrs. [VICTIM #1] and Mrs. [VICTIM #2] both stated they felt threatened and believed Mr. West was trying to provoke them. Mrs. [VICTIM #1] stated she thought Mr. West was going to hurt them.

Officer Higginbotham arrived on scene and approached Mr. West who admitted to doing everything the women said.

Mr. West was placed under arrest and put in the back of officer Higginbotham’s patrol vehicle. He was transported to the Liberty county jail to be processed by jail staff.

Mr. West has been charged with simple assault 16-5-20.

The arrest and transport of the suspect followed the department protocol consisting of the suspect being searched, handcuffs being applied, checked for fit, and double locked. The suspect was seat belted for transport and the vehicle was searched prior to and after transport with no contraband found.

My department issued BWC was activated during this incident.
