A Lexington man will now face two more charges on top of the charges he faces for kidnapping and aggravated assault against his ex-girlfriend and her minor children.
Tamarius Webster, 36, of Lexington was arrested Sept. 1 for allegedly holding his ex-girlfriend, an off-duty law enforcement officer—and their eight-month-old child hostage at her home in the southern portion of Carroll County. Webster also faces a charge of aggravated assault for shooting at the ground while his ex-girlfriend’s minor son was outside. Her son was able to get safely to his grandmother’s home.
Webster was arrested at an apartment complex in Oxford after a manhunt for him ensued.
Webster now faces charges of grand larceny and residential burglary for allegedly taking a John Deere tractor. A press release from the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department states that the burglary and alleged taking of the tractor occurred on County Road 43 in the Southern portion of Carroll County, near the Holmes County line. The release states that the tractor has since been returned to the owner. Southern District Judge Tinesha Erve-Earnest set a bond at $75,000, bringing Webster’s total bond amount to $675,000. He remains at Carroll-Montgomery Regional Correctional Facility.
