JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A Laurel man arrested in November for breaking into a home and asking family members' permission to date an 11-year-old girl is facing a new felony charge. 

Christopher Biglane, 43, is charged with felony simple assault on a police officer.

Authorities said Biglane tried to escape from the Jones County Jail when the incident occurred. 

He is now back in the Jones County Jail. 

Biglane was originally charged with resisting arrest (misdemeanor); possession of paraphernalia (misdemeanor); possession of controlled substance (misdemeanor) and burglary; breaking and entering inhabited dwelling; home invasion (felony). 

On Nov. 29, Jones County sheriff’s deputies were called to a home in Laurel in reference to a possible home invasion.

The victim said his 13 year old and 5 year old were at home when their neighbor, Biglane, came inside the home without warning or invitation.

Biglane said he wanted to see their 11-year-old sister and date her. The 13 year old said Biglane had gone into his sister’s room twice as if he was looking for her.

But when the victim came home, Biglane was no longer on scene. And a few hours later, deputies came back to the residence when Biglane returned acting unusual and frightening neighbors.

Deputies took him in to custody, and when asked why he was at the victim’s home, Biglane said he just wanted to date the victim’s daughter. The deputies found drug paraphernalia on Biglane as well as a small amount of methamphetamine.
