Carmi PD Make Arrests of Hancock and Lamont Friday and Saturday

The White County Demolition Derby wasn’t the only place a ruckus broke out Saturday according to Carmi Police reports.  44 year old Bobby Hancock of Sixth Street has a court date Monday morning following an alleged domestic battery situation Saturday night.  It was just after 10pm when law enforcement was called to the address.  Hancock was subsequently arrested on charges of domestic battery, resisting a peace officer, and disorderly conduct.  Online court records indicate Hancock was due in court for a first appearance at 10am Monday.

50 year old Jerry Lamont is currently free following his arrest Friday morning by Carmi Police.  The report indicates Lamont was stopped on Maple Street about 8:45am and then arrested for driving on a revoked driver’s license.  Lamont was consequently taken to the White County Jail and bonded out to $250 about 2 hours later.  Online court records don’t yet indicate his court date for this alleged offense.  Lamont is due for arraignment on September 13th for an unrelated criminal misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct that dates back to May 25th.

    It’s a wonder the police were able to get these bad guys locked up without help. After all, they just stood around like a bunch of cowards while the idiots fought at the fair.
