Man, woman face charges after fight breaks out at Regional One

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A Memphis man and woman are facing charges after police say they became combative and attempted to resist arrest.

Police arrived at Regional One on a disturbance call Sunday afternoon.

Upon their arrival, about 30-40 family members of shooting victims were gathered in front of the emergency room. Police said it stemmed from a triple shooting on Chelsea Avenue this weekend.

According to an affidavit, the crowd became hostile and a fight broke out. When officers attempted to separate them, 33-year-old Erica Seymour grabbed an officer and tried to pull him away.

Officers were able to put Seymour in handcuffs, but not after some resistance.

Once Seymour was placed in the back of a squad car, police say 32-year-old Tommie Franklin began to interfere with officers.

He was told to leave several times and when officers tried to remove him, he also became combative.

Franklin was placed in handcuffs and taken into custody.

They both face charges of disorderly conduct, resisting official detention, and interfering with officer serving process.
