Tristan Wayne Whitaker

Thursday morning at 7:00, officers responded to a shoplifter in the 1300-block of Clarksville, where a white male wearing an olive green shirt had stuffed items in his pants and left on a bicycle, headed eastbound. Police stopped Tristan Wayne Whitaker, 18, of Detroit, in the 1600-block of Clarksville and removed the stolen items. He also had methamphetamine, several pills, and other drug paraphernalia in his backpack. They charged Whitaker with two counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of a Dangerous Drug, Class “C” Theft, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. They booked Whitaker into the Paris Police Department Jail.

Ervin Dejuan Gray

Thursday at 11:47 am, officers initiated contact with a black male for walking on the wrong side of the roadway in the 400-block of West Sherman Street. They arrested Ervin Dejuan Gray, 34, of Paris, for active warrants. Gray tried to flee and physically resisted by hitting the officer with a closed fist before being handcuffed. Gray kicked the patrol unit, causing a significant dent. Gray continued his combative and aggressive demeanor with the Lamar County Jail staff, and they placed him into the Lamar County Jail rubber room. Officers charged Gray with on-view Evading Arrest Detention, Assault on a Peace Officer, Criminal Mischief, and two active warrants from a February 2022 investigation; Assault Causes Bodily Injury and Terroristic Threat.

At 1:24 Friday morning, someone flagged officers in a parking lot in the 3000-block of NE Loop 286. The officer approached an older model silver Chevrolet Silverado and observed the driver step out of the vehicle, spitting blood on the pavement as he bled profusely from his nose and mouth. The man advised that his ex-girlfriend had assaulted him in the 1300-block of West Kaufman Street, where an argument occurred. She had struck him with an unknown object on his nose. He claimed when she hit him, the “world went white” and that he “blacked out” and doesn’t remember how he got to this location. Officers transported him to Paris Regional Medical Center for treatment, and the investigation continued.

The Paris Police Department responded to 72 calls for service and arrested seven people Thursday (Jul 21).
