On Nov. 26, Dale Lee Palmer, 18, Oxford, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. According to reports, Palmer and three other individuals were at a Greensboro Road residence when deputies responded to a complaint call. Reports allege that Palmer and others were allegedly arguing with a woman sitting in a car in the backyard of the residence regarding a small dog that they believed she was withholding from them. The woman told the deputies that a week prior she had given the group an unknown number of dogs. The small dog, the woman said, was lost at a storage facility in Rutledge and could not be found. Palmer also requested to take ownership of his grandmother’s ashes, which a deputy initially agreed to but that offer was rescinded when Palmer allegedly began “yelling about the small dog that was not at the residence.” Palmer then allegedly addressed the deputy with his chest expanded in an aggressive manner and the deputy “could observe spit flying from his mouth as he yelled.” The deputy then began the process of arresting and detaining Palmer but a relative briefly tried to “pull him away” but that attempt failed and Palmer was taken to the ground and handcuffed.

On Nov. 23, a disorderly conduct complaint was filed at a Broughton Road residence. According to reports, a woman alleged that her landlord had kicked in the back door of her residence. The woman alleged that the man was kicking and hanging on the door and she retrieved her firearm for her safety and the man left. The woman said she had been employed by the man but was fired three weeks ago. She said the man, at the time of termination, had told her and sent her a text that she had two weeks to vacate the premises but had not served her with an eviction notice. A deputy located the landlord at the end of the driveway who told the deputy that the woman had lived in the residence for 40 days without paying rent. The landlord said he tried to get the woman to come to the front door and when she would not, he went to the back door and kicked it, damaging the door but, he rationalized, the door was his property. He also told the deputy he had not gone through a court-ordered eviction process. The deputy declined to arrest the landlord for disorderly conduct but he explained that the woman had rights and that the landlord needed to go through a court to evict. The landlord allegedly told the deputy he would go to the courthouse after he “ate a sandwich.”
