Sunday afternoon, about 1:00 pm, off-duty Columbus Police Officer Lance Luckey stopped in the Walmart parking lot to speak with Courtney Sircloumb of Kansas. Sircloumb stood near the Murphy Oil building, holding a sign that read “JESUS SAVES”. Luckey informed the man that, because he was on private property, it was unlawful for him do so.
After a short discussion, Sircloumb got loud and hostile and was placed under arrest for Disorderly Conduct. Searching Sircloumb, Luckey found a stash of money on the man (along with a condom, a hard pack of L&M (Ligget and Myers) cigarettes, a disposable lighter and a Chick-fil-A gift card.).
Officer Joseph Strevel responded to the scene to transport Sircloumb to the Lowndes County Adult Detention Center.
