On Tuesday (June 16, 2020), the Franklinton Police Department responded to the Fairground
Before leaving, the officers observed Dyson to have several lacerations to his arm. He refused medical treatment and cursed at officers during the interaction. Officers attempted to diffuse the situation and departed the scene without further incident.
A short time later, officers were called back to the apartments because Dyson reportedly continued to cause a disturbance and was observed driving erratically, endangering several children who were playing in the area. Officers again made contact with Dyson and attempted to place him under arrest. Dyson ignored the officers orders and violently resisted arrest. Dyson committed a battery on the officers and was tazed after a brief foot pursuit. Dyson was eventually taken into custody but only after he headbutted one of the officers in the face.
Dyson was transported to Riverside Medical Center where he underwent treatment for the lacerations to his arm before being turned over to the Washington Parish Jail. Dyson was charged with 1st Offense DWI, Reckless Operation of a Motor Vehicle, No Driver's License, 2 counts Child Restraint Violation, Resisting an Officer, 2 counts Battery on a Police Officer, Hate Crimes, Criminal Damage to Property, Simple Burglary and Disturbing the Peace. As of this morning, Dyson remains in jail with bond set at $50,000.00.
