According to the Stone County Circuit Court records, Donnie Lee Trammell (pictured), 51, allegedly made a threat against a law enforcement officer by using his cell phone.
Trammell is on probation and has a history of battery, terroristic threatening, and weapon charges, according to court records
He was arrested in his home when authorities of deputies and parole and probation officers arrived on a visit.
Lt. Dammon McGilton in his affidavit for probable cause of arrest, stated that Trammell told authorities when they arrived at his residence, “I guess y’all are here because of my conversation with Todd Hudspeth last night, huh?” Trammell then went on to say, “I just had a friendly conversation with him.”
