Ouachita Parish sheriff’s deputies arrested a West Monroe woman earlier this month for housing a runaway juvenile and resisting deputies.
Silver L Hippen, 20, of 1001 Glenwood Drive, West Monroe, was booked at Ouachita Correctional Center for encouraging or contributing to child delinquency, dependency, or neglect, and resisting an officer.
According to the Jan. 7 arrest report, deputies were investigating a runaway juvenile accident and met Hippen outside her house.
During questioning, Hippen admitted the child was inside the house but forbade deputies from entering without a warrant.
Deputies instructed Hippen to fetch the child but leave the door open for officers’ safety. Hippen turned and entered the house and tried to slam the door but a deputy blocked the door from closing with his foot.
At that point, Hippen became irate and screamed and cursed at deputies, according to the arrest report.
Though Hippen pulled away from deputies, they eventually placed her in handcuffs and located the child inside the house.
