A West Monroe man was arrested on suspicion of resisting an officer and disturbing the peace last week after Ouachita Parish sheriff's deputies received a complaint about the suspect's behavior from residents on Sandal Street.

Scott B. Smith, 65, of 403 Sandal St., West Monroe, walked into the street and yelled at his neighbor, “I'll put a bullet in your head, motherf***er,” the victim told deputies.

Other people witnessed the incident as well. Children were outside at the time, deputies reported.

The victim told deputies Smith's behavior has been a “constant problem” in recent weeks.

During questioning, Smith appeared unsteady on his feet and his speech was slurred, deputies reported.

Deputies tried to handcuff Smith but the suspect refused to place his hands behind his back, according to the May 28 arrest report.

Smith was booked at Ouachita Correctional Center.
