“The victim said she attempted to speak with the individuals about her package and was told they didn’t have it,” said Chief Moore. “The officer working the incident went to the apartment on Ted Jones Drive and spoke with a female and 31-year-old Daniel Simmons about the complaint. Both became verbally abusive with the officer refusing to identify themselves and denied having the package.”

Both continued to yell and curse at investigators and refused to listen to officer.

“The female struck the officer and began fighting and resisting the officer.  At that time Simmons also started fighting with the officer and continued until additional officers arrived,” said Chief Moore.

Simmons was taken arrested and the female was transported to the hospital. Chief Moore says charges are pending against her. 

Officers located the missing package inside the apartment and also located marijuana and paraphernalia.

Simmons is facing charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct, battery on a public safety officer, resisting arrest, false informing, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
