LEESVILLE, La. (KALB News Channel 5) -- On Feb. 8, an officer with the Leesville Police Department was at a local business for an unrelated complaint when security advised him that a group of individuals had exited the establishment without paying for their meals, LPD reported.

The officer made contact with the individuals who were in the parking lot and were yelling profanities.

The officers advised them of the complaint and that they needed to stop yelling the profanities. Due to a growing crowd, additional officers were called to the scene.

While attempting to speak with one individual, identified as Jeffery Brown, 27, of Leesville, Brown continued to use profane language in the parking lot of the business.

Brown was advised that he was being placed under arrest for Disturbing the Peace-Loud and Profane and Brown turned and placed his hands behind his back, according to officers.

Brown appeared to comply with the officers but continued to use profane language. While attempting to place handcuffs on Brown, Brown turned and pushed an officer and began to resist and fight the officers. The officers continued to struggle with Brown.  

LPD said, an officer resorted to utilizing his Taser in order to gain compliance. In order to affect the arrest, three officers had to struggle with Brown.

Once the officers gained control of Brown, he was arrested without further incident.

During the course of the struggle another individual was observed yelling profanities. This individual was identified as Ervin Wilson Jr, 28, of New Llano, LPD reported.

Officers said when advised to stop using profane language, Wilson did not comply with the officer's orders and he was taken into custody without use of force or further incident.
