Man wanted on felonies arrested in Red River Parish


A Red River Parish man wanted by the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office in connection with two separate felony incidents in July and August has been captured by Red River Parish Sheriff’s Deputies.

On Oct. 8, Jeffery H. Antwine, 33, of the 100 block of Teerwood Road, Coushatta, was booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center charged with 1-count of 2nd Degree Battery, 1-count of Criminal Trespassing and 1-count of Illegal Possession of a Firearm by a Person convicted of a Felony.

Red River Parish Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Antwine on Natchitoches Parish Criminal Warrants signed by a Tenth Judicial District Court Judge.

The charges stem from a July 3 incident. NPSO deputies received a report from an employer stating that employee had struck another employee while working on a job site near Cypress.

Deputies say they learned during the investigation that a Antwine allegedly hit the 67-year-old victim in the right eye with a closed fist which required medical attention.

Antwine allegedly hit the victim after he disagreed with the victim’s, (supervisor) instructions at the job-site.

Due to the severity of the injury, the victim required surgery.

Deputies say Antwine left the scene before they arrived, therefore, criminal warrants were secured for his arrest.

On Aug. 3 at 7:47 a.m., deputies responded to a criminal trespassing complaint in the 100 block of Harvey Calhoun Road near Ajax.

Deputies were notified that a person identified as Antwine was walking towards the complainant’s residence carrying a shotgun.

Deputies recovered a Mossberg shotgun in the grass at the scene.

Antwine fled into the woods before deputies arrived.

As the investigation continued, deputies learned Antwine had been convicted of a prior felony.

Deputies obtained criminal warrants for Trespassing and Possession of a Firearm by a Person Convicted of a Felony.

Antwine remains in the NPDC without bond.
