On July 1, an Oxford resident was arrested after an altercation between him and a women turned into violent threats, according to the Covington Police Department incident report.

 Charles L. Warren, 26 allegedly made provocative comments to a young woman at the Depot Bar and Grill Monday night, before making threats that he was carrying a hand gun.

 According to the incident report, Warren continuously made verbal comments to the woman before placing his hands on her, making her feel uncomfortable.

 The report stated that the woman began to argue with Warren before two men at the bar stepped in to break it up.

 The two men were both reportedly punched in the face by Warren during the quarrel.

 As CPD officer Stanley Moore arrived on the scene, there were several individuals holding Warren on the ground, and a bystander said that he was shouting he had a gun.

 Moore, who approached with caution, cleared everyone away from Warren as he had his Taser gun drawn.

 Moore asked Warren to place his hands behind his back so that he could make the arrest.

 Warren refused to follow orders and became combative. He tried to pick himself up off the ground before Moore shot him with a Taser in the lower back.

 After completing a full search of Warren, no gun was found in his possession.

Warren was taken to the Newton County Detention Center where he was charged with disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. Warren has since been released due to court order.
