Local man arrested after spitting in officer's face


Waco police arrested a man after he spit in an officer's face causing a disturbance at two local businesses.

27-year-old Billy Jo Kemp is being charged with assault on a police officer and resisting arrest following an incident outside of a local Walmart on Saturday.

Kemp was arrested in the Walmart parking lot in the 4300 block of Franklin Ave. just before 3:30 p.m., after he caused a disturbance while trying to buy beer.

Police say Kemp tried to buy beer at Walmart and at a store in the 600 block of North Valley Mills. He caused a disturbance at both places and threatened the employees.

According to police, Kemp was aggressive and combative towards officers when they found him in the Walmart parking lot. He spit in an officer's face and threatened to hurt officers when he got out of jail.

Kemp also faces a criminal trespassing charge from a previous arrest made back in March, in which he was found trespassing at the HEB on Wooded Acres.
