Man accused of repeatedly kicking officer in the face

RICHMOND —

A Fairview Drive man faces a felony assault charge after police say he repeatedly kicked on officer in the face Wednesday while he was being arrested for allegedly being intoxicated in public.

Junuis Randle Jr., 21, was charged with third-degree assault, second-degree disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and alcohol intoxication.

Richmond officers responded to call Wednesday about an intoxicated person on Amberly Way, according to an RPD news release.

When the officers arrived, they found Randle yelling and causing a disturbance, the release stated.

The man kicked the arresting officer in the face several times before he was “subdued in the back of a police car,” according to the release.

The officer was treated at Baptist Health in Richmond for injuries he received during the arrest. Maj. Bob Mott said the officer had some bruising and was taking a few days off work, but would be ok.

Randle’s photo was not available with his booking information on the Madison County Detention Center’s Jailtracker website.

Waco woman receives burglary, drug charges

Police have charged a Waco woman with drug, burglary and tampering with evidence felonies following a shoplifting incident Tuesday at Walmart, according to an RPD news release.

Chasity Thomas, 24, was charged with third-degree burglary, promoting contraband, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence and possession of drug paraphernalia.

She also was served with several warrants from Madison and Lee counties.

Thomas is accused of concealing items on herself in Walmart, including putting a new pair of shoes on her feet, according to the release.

She reportedly dropped all the items, except for the shoes, before leaving the store, the release stated. She already had a formal trespass warning from Walmart prior to this incident, so she was charged with third-degree burglary for being on the store’s premises.

While Thomas was being booked into the jail, deputies reported finding suspected methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia on her.

911 call leads to man’s arrest on drug charge

RPD officers investigated a 911 hang-up call Tuesday in the 1100 block of Richmond Green, according to a news release.

The officers came into contact with Anthony Willoughby, 35, of Winchester during their investigation. Willoughby had an outstanding warrant for contempt of court was was placed under arrest, the release stated.

During the arrest, another officer reported finding an oxycodone pill inside the vehicle Willoughby was occupying, and he was charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance.
