Posted: Updated:

UNION PARISH, La. (KNOE 8 News & UPSO) - Union Parish sheriff’s deputies had a busy weekend dealing with domestic and drug-related complaints.

Chelsea B. Shriner, 32, of Rose Crossing Lane, Spring, Texas, was arrested on five charges after showing up at a residence where she has been prohibited from visiting.

She was booked into the parish detention center for driving while intoxicated second offense, entering and remaining after being forbidden, resisting an officer, resisting with force/violence and no driver’s license. Her total bond was set at $5,000.

Deputies received word that Shriner was in the area and it was suspected that she would be going to the victim’s residence.

Sheriff Dusty Gates said a deputy was assigned to stay in the vicinity of Wildwood Acres Drive to watch out for Shriner. Her vehicle was spotted around 7 p.m. Friday (July 11) pulling into the victim’s driveway, turning around and parking in front of the house.

Gates said the deputy advised the suspect numerous times that she was not allowed there and given a chance to leave. Gates said Shriner refused to leave saying she was not going anywhere and argued loudly with the deputy.

The deputy also reported smelling a strong odor of marijuana and stated Shriner’s eyes were watery and bloodshot.

Gates said the suspect had to be forcibly removed from the car and that she was fighting the deputy the whole time. When the deputy finally got the handcuffs on Shriner, she stepped on his shoes in an attempt to keep him from walking and putting her inside the patrol unit. The deputy reported that she kept slamming her head into one of the patrol unit’s windows while en route to jail.

In a domestic abuse case Sunday, Celia Risinger, 49, of Byrnside Farm Rd., Spearsville, was booked on a felony count of aggravated battery domestic and entering and remaining after being forbidden. Risinger’s bond was set at $9,250.

Deputies were called to a residence near Spearsville where they found the victim bleeding from his left hand and wrist, wounds reportedly caused by Risinger who was stabbing at the victim with a small knife. The suspect had left the residence by the time deputies arrived.

When questioned about the incident, Risinger denied ever being at the victim’s house saying that she had been to El Dorado, Ark., grocery shopping. Deputies said she could not produce a receipt.

The victim was treated at the scene Pafford Ambulance personnel.

Gates said deputies have responded seven times over the past five months about the couple fighting.

In an early Monday morning arrest, a patrol deputy booked Lamichael D. Dixson, 19, of 804 Marie Ave., Ruston, into the detention center on a felony count of possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine. No bond had not been set Monday morning.

Dixson was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped on a traffic violation at about 12:30 a.m. Monday after a deputy noticed a small child standing up in the back seat. The deputy stopped the sports utility vehicle on Rabun Street in Farmerville.

The deputy reported that the SUV stopped in front of a residence where the front seat passenger and child lived. They were allowed to leave. The deputy asked the driver if there were any illegal drugs in the vehicle because he could smell burned marijuana. The driver said there were no drugs.

However, the deputy, who had been joined by another officer, saw Dixson, a backseat passenger, put a pill bottle in a seat pocket. When Dixson stepped from the vehicle, one deputy saw two small white rocks of suspected crack cocaine fall to the ground. The medicine bottle also contained several white rocks of suspected crack cocaine.

The deputies reported that Dixson also had $543 in cash in his pockets.
