Quintarious Henderson, the 17-year-old stepson of Newton County Commissioner J.C. Henderson was arrested Jan. 12 and charged with aggravated stalking.

According to Covington Police Lt. Wendell Wagstaff, officers were called to a home on Links Court Jan. 11 for a case of trespassing. When they arrived they spoke with the 42-year-old homeowner who reportedly told them he arrived home at 4:10 p.m. to find a young black male in his kitchen.

He allegedly told officers that he ran into the kitchen and chased the young man out the back door of his home. While running through the back yard the male reportedly dropped his black stocking cap. However, the victim allegedly told officers he knew the young man and had a temporary protection order (TPO) against him.

Although the particulars of the TPO are private, the order was granted to the victim on Sept. 9, 2009 and Henderson was ordered to have no contact with the family or their residence, according to Wagstaff.

The only person in the residence at the time Henderson was present was the victim’s 12-year-old daughter who reportedly told officers she had opened the door when Henderson arrived and allowed him to enter the residence.

Henderson is currently being held at the Newton County Detention Center without bond. The charge of aggravated stalking comes when stipulations of a TPO are violated.
