Shanda Crain, age 50 and a resident of Main Street in Franklinton, was arrested and jailed Thursday (January 27, 2022) on charges of cruelty to the infirmed and battery of a corrections deputy.
When a deputy responded to a complaint on Highway 438, he encountered an elderly man who was bleeding from wounds inflicted by an intoxicated Crain. The man, who is receiving daily outpatient medical care, was injured during the physical attack, including a bite wound. Northshore EMS responded to the scene and treated him before a relative transported him to the hospital.
A citizen who responded to the scene advised the deputy of the possible location of Crain. The officer and his Lieutenant then traveled to the location on Sidney Kemp Road and discovered an intoxicated Crain inside a camper trailer. A cursing Crain was placed under arrest, handcuffed and transported to the Washington Parish Jail.
While being booked into the jail, Crain physically assaulted a corrections deputy, adding another charge to her arrest. She was then booked on the two charges.
“People often do foolish things when under the influence of alcohol,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “The consumption of too much alcohol is no excuse, however, since it is the individual who makes the choice to take the first and then subsequent drinks. Crain will now have the privilege of explaining her reckless behavior to a 22nd Judicial District Court judge.”
