LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - When Lufkin Police officers went to arrest a man accused of trespassing at a home on First Street Tuesday, he allegedly fought back against them and told them that they had to let him go because he was Jesus.
Darion Anthony Amie, 22, of Lufkin, is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a Class A misdemeanor resisting arrest charge and a Class B misdemeanor criminal trespass charge. Collectively, his bail amount has been set at $3,000.
According to the Lufkin Police Department's daily activity report, LPD officers responded to a report of a man trespassing at a home in the 500 block of North First Street at about noon Tuesday. When the officers tried to arrest Amie, he allegedly fought back against them and told them several times that they had to let him go because he was "Jesus."
On the way to the jail, Amie went from talking about he hated one of the officers to how rich he was, the affidavit stated. He also allegedly talked about how he has a pretty girlfriend and again told the officers he was Jesus.
"He also said his birthday out loud several times and told the officer that if he would add up the numbers, the officer would know that Amie was the actual Jesus," the report stated.
When the Lufkin PD patrol unit pulled up to the jail, and the doors opened, Amie allegedly told the officers "it was going to be on."
