Caddo deputies arrested a man and woman following an incident at Southwood High School, said Sheriff Steve Prator.

After a heated confrontation with the principal at Southwood High School on Friday, 29 year-old Dewanna Battle hit a school security coordinator with her car. Sr. Dep. Willie Williams, who works as the school’s resource officer, chased Battle for over five miles before losing her. CPSO Patrol deputies later located Battle’s vehicle abandoned at the Quality Inn on Monkhouse Drive. 

That same day, patrol deputies visited Fat Daddy’s Crawfish on Greenwood Rd. where Battle works and informed the business owner, Mark Hailey, that they are looking for Battle. 

On Sunday, April 10, CPSO detectives got a tip that Battle was back at her workplace. Sgt. EJ Parker came to arrest Battle at Fat Daddy’s Crawfish. Two other deputies followed to assist, but Hailey physically blocked them from entering the business.

Dewanna Battle, 29, was booked into Caddo Correctional Center charged with aggravated assault, aggravated assault flight from an officer, aggravated battery, contempt of court, battery of a school teacher, and probation fugitive.

Mark Hailey, 70, was also booked into Caddo Correctional Center charged with accessory after the fact, aggravated battery, and aggravated flight from an officer.
