JAMESTOWN – A city man faces charges related to child endangerment, reckless endangerment and resisting arrest following an domestic incident Thursday morning in Jamestown.
Jamestown Police were sent to the E 2nd St. Plaza just before 9:30 a.m. to deal with a report of a domestic dispute between a man and a woman. When officers arrived, they found that 42 year-old Dougshon Gholston behind the wheel of a parked car and when they approached, he allegedly began to use obscene, loud language. Officers warned Gholston to stop and when he refused, he was told he was going to be placed under arrest, at which time Gholston refused to exit the vehicle. Gholston was eventually removed and charged with Unnecessary Noise, Obstructing Governmental Administration, and Resisting Arrest.
A further investigation found he was allegedly angry with a female who was also in the car, and allegedly drove his vehicle toward two parked cars, threatening to hit them.
Two children were also in the car and Gohlston was also charged with two counts of child endangerment, along with a count of criminal contempt for being with the woman, even though a court-issued order of protection requires him to keep away from her.
Gohlston was arrested on related charges and taken to the city jail to await arraignment.
