Batesville Man Arrested in Oxford for Felony Child Neglect
On April 26th, 2021, the Oxford Police Department responded to a call in the 1100 block of Frontage Road for a welfare concern due to a drug overdose. A male subject (later identified as James Payton Jones, 23 of Batesville), was found on scene with an infant child.
After the initial investigation, due to the narcotic activity in the room and for the welfare of the child, Jones was arrested and charged with Felony Child Neglect.
A Lafayette County Justice Court judge issued Jones a bond of $50,000.
