ARCOLA, LA — Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards reports the arrest of Randall J. Holmes, 22, of Steptoe Rd. on January 16, 2012. Holmes was arrested and taken into custody for placing several false 911 calls. Deputies responded to each call for service.
After responding to the final call where Holmes threatened to cause harm to get his way and demanded to be arrested, deputies made contact with the Holmes' mother at the residence.

He was also advised that he was under arrest for Criminal Mischief. After a few moments, Holmes exited the residence and became violent toward deputies, aggressively resisting arrest.
After a brief struggle, Holmes was detained and transported to the parish jail without further incident.
