Paris police have arrested a man in relation to an altercation that took place on June 27 in the 1700 block of N. Main Street between a male juvenile and a male adult.
“The Paris Police Department arrested Robert Jameson on warrants for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Felon in Possession of a Firearm,” said interim Chief of Police Randy Tuttle.
According to reports, police were called to the scene of a fight in progress in which a black male juvenile and a white adult male were engaged in a fight. The investigation showed that after the conclusion of the fight, a bystander later identified as Mr. Jameson drove onto the parking lot and exited the vehicle.
“Mr. Jameson confronted the juvenile who was in possession of a pocket knife. Mr. Jameson retreated to his vehicle and obtained a handgun. He then returned and ordered the black male to drop the knife and ordered the juvenile and another black male onto the ground at gunpoint. Mr. Jameson then got into his vehicle and left the scene prior to police arriving.”
