WILLIAMSON - A Williamson resident who is no stranger to the law has once again found himself in trouble with police on charges that include nighttime burglary, destruction of property, public intoxication and domestic assault.

Frankie Elwood Fields, 24, of Pike Street, was taken into custody by Williamson City Police patrolmen J.D. Tincher and J. Marcum after he allegedly broke the door down and entered the residence located at 507 Maple Walk. The homeowner, told officers that the defendant kicked the door in and came inside demanding to see his wife. Fields is said to have threatened the homeowner’s wife, and destroyed property registered in her name.

According to the complaint, Fields had been drinking extensively throughout the evening and showed definite signs of intoxication. When the officers made contact with the defendant, he allegedly was standing outside his Pike Street residence with a beer in his hand. According to the report, Fields first refused to comply with the commands given to him, but eventually did as he was instructed. When questioned about his alleged crime, the defendant told police he was going to “kick his wife’s ass” and planned to “bust all the windows out of her vehicle.”

Fields was arraigned by Mingo County Magistrate Pan Newsome and was released from custody after posting a $6,500 bond.
