Bibb County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Deputies responded to a dispute at a residence in the 900 block of Ponce De Leon Circle South on April 18, 2019 just after 11:00 pm.

When deputies arrived they found 39-year-old Dwayne Eli Lawrence, of Macon, arguing with his roommates. During the argument, Lawrence had become very belligerent and was disturbing the neighborhood.
