Christopher Lee Bennett was arrested for violating a criminal trespass warning at the Shidell Apartments around 6 p.m. Wednesday, February 6. He resisted officer’s attempts to place him in handcuffs, resisted being placed into a patrol vehicle, and resisted entry into the Franklin County Jail.

During the altercation and after officers placed him in the “violent cell”, Mr. Bennett threatened bodily harm against the officers and jail personnel. To learn more about this and other incidents involving local law enforcement officers, see the February 14 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
