46-year-old William Antonio Southern was arrested as part of a city-wide warrant round-up. Southern had a domestic altercation with his uncle, William Carl Southern, at his mother’s, Vickie Southern’s, house around 8:30 p.m. on February 27th. Vickie alerted the authorities, advising them that William Antonio and her grandson, Joe Shawn Thompson, had a verbal disagreement. When officers arrived, she further explained that William Antonio was being disorderly. Vickie explained that Thompson told her that William Antonio had put a knife against William Carl’s neck. Officers then spoke with William Carl, who stated while he and William Antonio were playing basketball, William Antonio pulled out a knife and held it to his neck. William Carl did not sustain any injuries in the incident. Since he left, officers obtained a warrant for William Antonio’s arrest.

Then, on March 25th, William Carl Southern called the police, telling them that he came outside while he was at another location and found William Antonio Southern sitting in his backseat. William Carl told William Antonio to leave, but he refused, so William Carl drove to Vickie Southern’s house. When they got there, William Carl went inside to get Vickie, during which William Antonio grabbed a brick and threw it multiple times at his vehicle. This caused the windshield to crack, leaving dents and scratches on the driver’s side door. Then, William Antonio punched William Carl in the face and ran into the woods behind the residence. A warrant was issued for William Antonio’s arrest. William Antonio Southern was taken into custody for aggravated assault, domestic assault, and vandalism on June 12th as part of a city-wide warrant round-up.
