Ouachita Parish sheriff's deputies arrested a West Monroe man on suspicion of aggravated assault and resisting a police officer with force last week after authorities received complaints of a disturbance at Huey Lenard Loop.

The victim claimed Justin Hart Wickliffe, 30, of 1001 Glenwood Drive, West Monroe, brandished a knife and caused him to fear for his life. A witness reported separating Wickliffe and the victim.

During questioning, Wickliffe denied brandishing a weapon or making threats to harm anyone.

Deputies tried to place Wickliffe in handcuffs but he struggled, according to the Sept. 1 arrest report. Authorities deployed a taser to gain control of Wickliffe, who was later booked at Ouachita Correctional Center on the charges.
