On Jan. 1 at 1:35 a.m., Deputy Michael Owens responded to a call about a man attempting to break down an apartment door. When Owens arrived at the scene, he found Larry Clint Wilson wearing a t-shirt and underwear holding the door knob and ramming his shoulder into the door, in attempt to bust the door open.
Owens approached Wilson and told him to step away from the door. Instead of stepping away, he became belligerent stating he wasn’t doing anything wrong and that Owens needed to mind his own business. The person inside the apartment yelled through the door that Wilson lived in the apartment next door. Owens tried to explain several times to Wilson that he was trying to bust down the wrong door, but he allegedly acted as is he didn’t understand. At this point, Owens noticed a strong smell of alcohol coming from Wilson. He was unsteady on his feet and had slurred speech, according a report from the Sheriff’s Department. Wilson continued to curse loudly and after several commands he finally sat down on the sidewalk.
Once Wilson was on the sidewalk, Owens was able to speak with the victim who stated there were two children inside her apartment who were extremely scared. The victim said that Wilson had been ramming the door trying to bust it open while screaming obscenities before Owens arrived.
After talking with the victim, Owens told Wilson to stay seated, bend over forward and place his hands behind his back. Wilson refused to comply jumping to his feet screaming he wasn’t going to jail. After a small struggle, Owens was able to subdue Wilson.
Wilson, 45. 496 Country Oaks, LaFollette is charged with aggravated burglary, public intoxication and resisting arrest.
