EUNICE, LA — Eunice PD officers responded to the 500 block of Nimitz Street in reference to fight after someone called 911. Upon arrival officers found a 23-year-old unresponsive male lying on the ground so an ambulance was called, he then regained consciousness before the ambulance arrived.
Officers started questioning everyone on scene about the incident including the mother of the suspect and victim lying on the ground.
The mother stated that an argument started because of money and both of her sons were upset. The mother stated that when she confronted Tywon he grabbed her by the throat and threw her down. The other son went to assist his mother when Tywon grabbed him in a choke hold until he passed out.
Officers then took Tywon into custody after learning that he assaulted his mother and brother. Tywon then resisted officers when they were taking him into custody and he refused to walk to the police unit. Officers then physically carried him to the police unit and placed him inside.
Tywon then began to kick the doors and windows as he was transported to Eunice PD for booking.
During booking, Tywon provided false booking information such as his SS# and DOB. After reading his fingerprints on AFIS (Automated Fingerprint Identification System) his true identity and information was provided from the FBI database.
