Deputies charge male with domestic abuse battery

Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Officers responded to a domestic abuse call in Dubach on Monday and ended up arresting a male at the residence.

Deputies responded to a domestic call and made contact with the female complainant, another female and the suspect, Johnny Niemeyer, 51. The female caller stated that Niemeyer entered the house a little before 6 p.m. and became irate because she was preparing dinner too early. She also said that Niemeyer had been consuming alcoholic beverages, which influenced his aggressive behavior.

Following that initial altercation, Niemeyer left the residence but returned after a few hours and physically pulled the female out of the bed by grabbing her hair and forcing her into the hallway.

Deputies saw a hole in the wall near the bedroom door and saw swelling on the female’s head. The other female stated that when Niemeyer returned home, she was lying in bed and heard the altercation between him and the other woman. She said when she exited her bedroom, she observed the woman lying near the hallway where the hole was.

Niemeyer admitted to committing the battery and was transported to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center and booked for domestic abuse battery.
