The Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Department reports the arrest of a Red River Parish man wanted in connection with two separate felony incidents back in July and August. He was captured by Red River Parish Sheriff’s.
On October 8, Jeffery H. Antwine, 33, of the 100 block of Teerwood Road, Coushatta, La. was transported and booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center from the Red River Parish Jail. He is charged with 1-count of 2nd Degree Battery, 1-count of Criminal Trespassing and 1-count of Illegal Possession of a Firearm by a Person convicted of a Felony.
Red River Parish Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Antwine on Natchitoches Parish Criminal Warrants signed by a Tenth Judicial District Court Judge. The charges stem from a July 3 incident, when NPSO Deputies received a report from an employer reporting that employee had struck another employee while working on a job-site near Cypress, La.
Deputies say they learned during the investigation that a Jeffrey Antwine allegedly hit the 67-year-old victim in the right eye with a closed fist which required medical attention. Antwine allegedly hit the victim after he disagreed with the victim (supervisor) instructions at the job-site.
The victim had to undergo surgery the injury was so severe. Deputies say Antwine left the scene before they arrived, therefore, criminal warrants were secured for his arrest.
On August 3 at approximately 7:47am, Deputies assigned to the NPSO Patrol Division responded to a criminal trespassing complaint in the 100 block of Harvey Calhoun Road near Ajax, La. Deputies were notified while responding to the incident, that a person identified as Jeffery Antwine was walking towards the complainant’s residence with a shotgun in his hand.
Deputies recovered a Mossberg shotgun at the scene hidden in the grass. Deputies say before they arrived on the scene, Antwine fled into the woods.
Deputies checked the area but were unable to locate Antwine.
As the investigation continued deputies learned Antwine had been convicted of a prior felony. Deputies obtained criminal warrants on Antwine signed by a district judge for Trespassing and Possession of a Firearm by a Person Convicted of a Felony.
