— One of three people involved in a fight that sent a Franklin County deputy to the hospital was out on bond Monday.

Janika Montia Williams, 18, made her $2,500 bond on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. The two men involved in the altercation were behind bars Monday.

Deputies were called to break up a fight between Janika Williams and Patrick Xavier Davis, 20, Saturday at the Citgo gas station at 611 N. Bickett Blvd., near U.S. Highway 401, in Louisburg, according to Franklin County Sheriff Pat Green.

Joe Williams, a relative of both combatants, also joined the fray, according to Louisburg Police Capt. Jason Abbott.

Deputy James Williamson, 61, who arrived to back up the first responders, suffered a severe head injury while trying to break up the fight, Green said. He was in stable condition at Duke University Hospital Monday afternoon.

Louisburg police charged Joe Williams, 24, of 168 Chicken Hollow Way in Henderson, with assault inflicting serious injury on a law enforcement officer. Abbott said after Joe Williams’ arrest that it was not immediately clear whether he directly attacked Williamson.

Davis, of 5370 Taylor Gin Road in Castalia, was charged with disorderly conduct and failure to disperse. He was held on $2,500 bond.

Joe Williams’ bond was set at $150,000.

    Now did he post $2500 or 10% of that amount to get out? Chances are that he only posted $250 to the court and obligated himself for the full amount to his bondsman if he skipped.

    I wonder why the deputies didn't call on Lucille for help. That really was the time when her help was needed...oh almost forgot, restrictions!

    assaulting a police officer should be an automatic five years! no good time, no gain time, no time off for good behavior. 60 months! Pay for his Dr. bills, lost wages any other expense involved.
