A report that a man was standing outside a woman’s window yelling and screaming dispatched Laurens Police to an Oakland Heights residence at 4:14 Saturday morning.
Lt. Jared Hunnicutt arrived a couple of minutes later at 4:16 am and reportedly observed a man standing near a window of the residence yelling and screaming profanities. When the man observed the officer, he fled on foot to the other side of the house. Lt. Hunnicutt followed and reported witnessing the man throw a prescription pill bottle some 15 feet away. He continued walking from the officer following orders to stop. He also allegedly refused orders to get his hands out of his pockets. With the man still reportedly yelling and cursing, Lt. Hunnicutt got the man’s hands from his pocket and placed him in investigative detention, with handcuffs, into the rear of his police vehicle.
The officer reportedly located the unmarked prescription bottle and found a small plastic bag inside. It allegedly contained 10 grams of marijuana and 4 blue pills identified as 10 MG generic Lortabs. The drugs were taken into evidence.
40-year-old Ronnie Calvin “Flip” Lyons of 1341 Eichelberger Road, Gray Court was then charged with Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute Marijuana, Possession of a Schedule III Controlled Substance and with Breach of Peace.
