Bellegrove standoffs end

Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following statement and mug shots.

Two standoffs at the same time within two blocks of each other.

On Monday around 7:08 pm, deputies were dispatched to Fairfax Circle in the Bellegrove subdivision off of Spillway Road for a hostage/standoff situation. Rankin County 911 received a call from a female victim inside the residence stating she was being held captive at gun point by her estranged husband, Anthony Todd PAYNE. The called stated her two year old son was also in the residence.

PAYNE then realized the victim was on the phone and took the phone away. The victim was physically restrained, but was able to access a phone when PAYNE left the room and dialed 911. She then hid the phone and left an open line with 911.

Once deputies arrived on scene, they made contact with PAYNE who advised them to leave his residence or he would shoot them. PAYNE also advised he had hidden numerous explosives in the yard. This was proven to be false.

Initial responding deputies were able to secure the exterior of the residence while waiting for the county SRT (Special Response Team) to arrive on scene. While waiting, 911 was able to establish contact with PAYNE, who advised them he was releasing both individuals that were inside the residence. Once released, they were taken to a staging area at St. Marks Church on Grants Ferry Road where they were interviewed by Sheriff's investigators.

At the request of PAYNE, he was put in contact with the SRT commander, who was previously known to him. Once on scene, the SRT commander was able to talk PAYNE out of the residence where he was taken into custody without further incident.

PAYNE was wearing a ballistic vest when he was taken into custody. He also had numerous magazines for an AR rifle on his person. Investigators then executed a search warrant on the residence and located an AR rifle, a handgun, numerous hunting weapons and a gas mask.

PAYNE is an inactive Marine that may have been trained in some of the same tactics used by SRT members.
While taking PAYNE into custody, dispatch advised of a second domestic call that was two blocks west of the Fairfax call on Bent Creek Circle North. Patrol deputies and SRT members then responded to that location. This second call was within walking distance of the first call.

This call was received from a 12 year old female from Bent Creek Circle North. She stated her step-father was beating on her mother. They were able to leave that location and met up with deputies at a safe location.

While the victim was speaking with deputies, other deputies and SRT members were able to take Jeremy Martinez LEWIS into custody without any incident.

PAYNE will be charged with kidnapping and domestic violence. He will be held without bond in the Rankin County Jail pending is initial appearance with Rankin County Court Judge Kent McDaniel.

LEWIS has been charged with domestic violence and failure to comply with a lawful order. His charges are misdemeanor charges and he will be given a court date in Rankin County Justice Court once a bond is set.
Due to juveniles being on scene at both locations, Rankin County Juvenile Court Judge Tom Broome has been notified to address any juvenile or custody issues that may exist.

We are thankful both of these calls ended without anyone being injured. This is the type of resolution we would like from all standoff situations.

Note to self: if there is a SWAT standoff within walking distance of where you are, don't start whooping on your woman.

So while there's a cop standoff with an ex-marine who's holding his estranged wife and child hostage, some dude a half a block away just starts beating his wife? With the cops in spitting distance?

Sounds like one of these guys is crazy and one is just plain stupid.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
