Jones County deputies arrest man after domestic disturbance

Posted: Updated:

Authorities make an arrest in a domestic disturbance case.

After responding to a call from relatives, authorities say James Abel Pryor was causing a disturbance at his home.  When two deputies arrived, they noticed Pryor was belligerent and intoxicated. 

As the deputies attempted to put Pryor in their car, he began to pull away from deputies.  After the deputies repeatedly asked Pryor to stop resisting arrest, Pryor struck both deputies.   One deputy suffered a broken bone on his hand, the other had minor cuts. 

Authorities confirm Pryor has bonded out of jail -- after being booked on charges of causing a family disturbance, resisting arrest – and two counts of simple assault on the deputies.
