Almost a Knife Fight

Monday around 3:30pm Lt. Haupfear and Cpl. Johnson of the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office responded to a Dragon Trail, Laurens residence in reference to an argument that resulted in one subject pulling a knife. When deputies arrived on scene one subject was inside and the other outside the residence. One subject was asked about pulling a knife on the other subject. The subject stated he did not pull a knife but did get in an argument over the other subject’s boyfriend going through his clothes. Lt. Haupfear located the knife that the second subject stated was pulled on her. The second subject stated that she told subject 1 that if he jumped on her boyfriend he better watch his back. The officers made the determination that the argument was not over and if both subjects were left at the residence a fight could occur. Both subjects were placed under arrest for Breach of Peace and transported to the Johnson detention center

43 Year old Ronnie David Deyton of 146 Dragon Trail Laurens and 42 year old Melissa Kay Thomas of 146 Dragon Trail Laurens were both booked into the JohnsonDetentionCenter charged with Breach of Peace. Both remain in the JohnsonDetentionCenter as of this broadcast.
