Disturbance results in arrest

A Choudrant woman was arrested Tuesday after she allegedly entered a residence without permission. 

Lincoln Parish deputies responded to a Highway 821 address regarding a disturbance late Tuesday evening. The homeowner stated his soon-to-be ex-wife Priscilla Watts entered his house without consent earlier that evening. He said Watts, 45, had never lived there with him. He said he and his current girlfriend were in the house when they heard the front door slam open and a woman yell “hello.” He said Watts was drunk and had previously seen him with his girlfriend earlier that evening. 

The victim stated Watts charged at his girlfriend and he grabbed her along with his son and got her out the front door. He reported Watts again tried to slam the door and broke the storm door’s hydraulic hinge. 

Watts was located at her Whitehead Road residence. She admitted she did not live at the Highway 821 address and had not received an invitation to enter the house. She admitted she slammed the front door which broke the storm door. She was arrested and booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for simple criminal damage to property and unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling.

Bail was set at $4,500.
