Williamson man charged with felony contempt, stalking after investigation

In Wayne County, a troubling incident led to the arrest of a Williamson man following a disturbance. Roger M. Cooney, 57, was taken into custody following a report of a family disturbance. He faces several serious charges, including felony contempt, stalking, criminal trespass, and harassment.
