Larry G. Williams

Around 1:50 p.m. Saturday, the sheriff's office received a complaint that an intoxicated transient at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds who was causing problems.

Deputies met with Larry Williams, 51, escorted him from the fairgrounds and told him not to come back. But around 2:50 p.m., another complaint arrived that Williams had indeed come back and was in a barn on the west side of the property, according to a sheriff's statement.  

Deputies confronted Williams there and charged him with trespassing. As they tried to take him to a patrol car, Williams cursed and resisted. Once in the patrol car, he kicked the car door hard enough to damage it. He was removed from the car so leg restraints could be applied. Then he was taken to the Lincoln County jail with no more problems, the statement said. 

Williams is charged with trespassing, criminal mischief and resisting arrest.
