Alonzo Battle III
A Warren County deputy drew his weapon to stop a man from injuring another with knives on July 30.
According to Chief Deputy Sammy Purvis, the sheriff’s office responded to a physical domestic assault in progress in the 320 block of Pine Avenue in Warrenton.
When Deputy Chet Jones arrived, Alonzo Battle III, 35, of the 300 block of Pine Ave., was standing over a 66-year old Willie Hudson with a butcher knife in each hand, Purvis said. Jones drew his weapon and ordered Battle to drop the knives. Battle complied and was arrested.
Purvis said Battle and the Hudson had been fighting and Battle allegedly hit Hudson with a concrete block and he fell to the ground before the deputy arrived. The altercation allegedly began over an incident involving a woman, Purvis said.
