A Boonville man was arrested Aug. 23 for an outstanding warrant and assaulting a law enforcement officer.
While stopped at the Eagle Stop station in California, a deputy with the Moniteau County Sheriff's Office identified a suspect, from previous encounters, as Tommie J. Smith. The deputy understood Smith had a warrant out for his arrest from Jefferson City. After confirmation from dispatch, the deputy made contact with Smith outside the business and placed him under arrest.
As the handcuffs were being placed on Smith, he began to resist and fight the deputy, ultimately biting him on the shoulder. With this, another deputy arrived on the scene to assist, and after a brief altercation, Smith was placed into a patrol vehicle.
Deputies then made contact with Carissa R. Davis, who was with Smith at the time. Davis became uncooperative with deputies on the scene and was placed under arrest. At this time, Smith kicked the side window glass out of the patrol car and became combative.
Smith was transferred to the Moniteau County Jail in a secure transport van. Davis followed in another squad car. When Davis arrived at the jail, she was searched and methamphetamine was found on her person.
Tommie J. Smith, 25, was charged with a warrant for theft from the Jefferson City Police Department, assault on a law enforcement officer and property damage with no bond.
Carissa R. Davis, 27, of Jefferson City was charged with possession of controlled substance (meth) and was released on her own recognizance.
