Woman charged with stalking, resisting arrest

A Farmington woman had several charges filed against her after police say she stalked and threatened a man, broke a restraining order, then resisted arrest and assaulted an officer on April 11.

Carol Lewis, 42, is being charged with a class D felony of aggravated stalking, a class D felony of resisting arrest, a class A misdemeanor of violation of an order of protection, a class A misdemeanor of assault of a law enforcement officer and a class B misdemeanor of property damage in the second degree.

According to the probable cause statement, the St. Francois County Sheriff’s Department was called to the 600 block of Pendleton for a disturbance.

The report said when the deputy arrived it was discovered Lewis had violated a full order of protection. She reportedly walked into the man’s home to make contact with him and broke a window next to the front door with a piece of firewood.

The man told the deputy that Lewis had threatened to kill him and he was in fear of his safety.

The report said the deputy found out Lewis had attempted to break in the day before, but had fled from the house before deputies arrived. The report said once Lewis was located, she resisted arrest by struggling with another deputy and struck the deputy in the arm.

Lewis is being held on a $25,000 bond in the St. Francois County Jail.
