Quinterious Henderson, 17, the stepson of Newton County Commissioner J.C. Henderson, was arrested once again for violating a temporary protection order filed against him by the parents of a 12-year-old girl.

Henderson was initially arrested and charged with aggravated stalking in January, when the father of the young girl came home and found him in the house with his daughter. However, the charges against him were reduced to criminal trespass and he was sentenced to 12 months probation with 30 days of that served in the Newton County Detention Center. He was ordered not to come within 500-yards of the residence where the girl lives.

On April 10, a warrant was signed by the girl's father, stating that Henderson had once again violated an order to stay away from the girl. On April 28, officers from the Covington Police Department were called to the area of Monticello and Taylor Streets and when they arrived reportedly noticed Henderson walking down the street.

When they attempted to arrest Henderson he allegedly ran but officers caught up with him in the area of Pineview Drive where he was found hopping on one foot, indicating he had injured himself during the chase. He was checked out by medical personnel and after medical clearance was booked into the Newton County Detention Center on charges of aggravated stalking and obstruction of a law enforcement officer.
