Early morning on Sunday, September 23 a deputy was responding to a call west of Chillicothe on or near Highway 190. While heading that direction the deputy observed the possible suspect vehicle committing traffic violation(s) which gave reasonable suspicion of an intoxicated driver. The deputy stopped the vehicle outside of Chillicothe on Highway 190 which had 2 occupants in the car. The deputy was allegedly verbally assaulted by the passenger who would not comply with reasonable commands from the deputy as he attempted to conduct a full investigation at the stop and the passenger reportedly continued with the alleged verbal attack, failing to comply with reasonable requests and interfering with an investigation and DWI arrest. The deputy was ultimately assisted by 2 Chillicothe PD officers and placed Joycelynn Lavonne Still, 28, Chillicothe under arrest for alleged Domestic Violence, Failing to Comply with Lawful Orders, and Resisting Arrest. Ms. Still reportedly had to be physically removed from the vehicle by the deputy and a CPD officer due to the resistance and combative actions and allegedly continued resisting being arrested and restrained. The deputy also arrested Roy Austin Yeomans, 30, Chillicothe for alleged Driving While Intoxicated. Both were taken to the Chillicothe PD where the deputy and CPD officer processed both persons. Mr. Yeomans was issued citation and released to responsible person while Ms. Still was transferred to the Daviess Dekalb County Regional Jail. Ms. Still was later officially charged in Livingston County Associate Court with alleged Resisting/Interfering with Arrest and has been released on bond pending court appearance. We appreciate the CPD assistance on this incident.
