A Paris teen was jailed on a tampering with evidence charge Saturday night, according to arrest reports.

While stopping a black Audi SUV at 9:19 p.m. October 31st, 2020 on South Broadway Street, Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Dustin Fisher reported seeing an object go out the passenger’s side window of the SUV as it was pulled into a parking lot. The deputy approached the SUV after it stopped in a parking space and detained both occupants for further investigation, according to arrest reports.

When another officer arrived to assist, Fisher checked the area where the item had fallen. Fisher reported finding a pistol lying in the grass.

The 18-year-old Paris, TX resident, identified in arrest reports as Jaylyn Lance Williams, was arrested at 10:35 p.m. on Halloween for tampering with or fabricating physical evidence. Officials Monday indicated it was still unclear why the gun was tossed.

Williams was released from Hopkins County jail Sunday, Nov. 1, on a $5,000 bond on the third-degree felony charge.

HCSO Sgt. Tanner Steward was credited in arrest reports as assisting with the arrest.
