Gregory Lee Prince, 25, of Mallory, was arrested and charged with tresspassing (when asked to leave), public intoxication, obstructing an officer, assault on an officer and battery on an officer.
Logan County Sheriff Department deputies answered a 911 call in regards to a prowler complaint. Deputies spoke with the homeowners and learned the defendant, Gregory Lee Prince, had grabbed the door and pulled it, then walked into the residence.
The two occupants of the residence say they asked Prince to leave several times, but he only stood in the doorway asking questions, then went around the residence knocking on the windows.
The deputies noticed someone matching the description of the prowler outside the residence, in the roadway, and attempted to question him. The defendant stated he was just out drinking some beer and had been to a friend’s house.
Deputies say the defendant became very beligerant and combative. The deputies attempted to do a “Terry Frisk,” which is meant to protect the officers and possibly aid in the detection and prevention of crime. The defendant kept arguing and pulling away from the deputies.
The deputies had to place the defendant in handcuffs because he kept attempting to fight them. As he was being placed in the cruiser, the defendant told the deputies he would catch them out and whip them, then kicked one of the deputies in the right leg.
Prince’s bond was set at $5,000.
