52-year-old Richard Williams was charged with assault, criminal trespass, possession of marijuana, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, and sexual battery after ruckus in front of health clinic.

On March 10th, officers were called to Walker Comprehensive Health Clinic located at 1035 14th Avenue North in response to an unruly person. Richard Williams was walking on 14th Avenue North when he abruptly confronted the victims as they were attempting to approach a vehicle in the parking lot.

During an ensuing verbal altercation, Richard began swatting and shoving Kris Ralston. In addition, Libell Counts stated Richard “forcefully groped her breasts.” According to the affidavit, the victims and an unnamed witness agreed to the same story.

Officers also confirmed the clinic had maintained an active trespass waiver and Williams did not have a legitimate purpose for being on the property. During his arrest, Williams refused to answer questions but a search of his person produced a marijuana grinder complete with a “green leafy substance” that looked and smelled like marijuana.

Richard Williams was arrested and charged with assault, criminal trespass, possession of marijuana, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, and sexual battery. He is currently jailed in lieu of an $8,000 bond.
