Man accused of yelling profanities at police

DOWNTOWN JACKSON — A man was in city court Tuesday to face a disorderly conduct charge after a disturbance at a Jackson apartment complex. Court papers say police responded just after 6 a.m. Monday to a reported disturbance in the 300 block of West Forest Avenue. When they arrived, Brandon Purdy started yelling and cursing at them in the parking lot, according to an affidavit. Purdy told officers he did not live at the apartment complex, but he refused to leave and continued to yell profanities at police and residents who came outside because of the disturbance, the document states. Police say they arrested Purdy after multiple attempts to stop the disturbance and have him leave the area. Purdy’s bond is set at $100,000.
