Derek Thomas Mclendon, 23, of J's Lane in Haughton, was arrested around 11:30 p.m. last night after scaring an elderly female. Mclendon became intoxicated at Bodcau recreation area and got into an altercation with an unknown subject. He then walked to the 1200 block of Highway 157 and went up to the back door of a home.
