Domestic incident prompts numerous charges

A Dubach man was arrested Friday after an alleged domestic incident.

About 9 p.m. Saturday, Lincoln Parish deputies responded to an Airline Road residence regarding a battery which had occurred previously on Singleton Road. While deputies were responding, a caller reported Edward Henry, 49, was threatening people with a firearm at the Airline Road address. 

Before deputies arrived, Henry fled the scene. His vehicle was spotted being operated in a reckless manner, running a stop sign and speeding. Henry was stopped and placed under arrest. A pistol magazine was found in the vehicle, but no firearm was located. 

Deputies then met with the victim on Airline Road, noticing she had a large scrape on her right elbow bleeding and scratches on her neck. The victim stated she and her son were at their Singleton Rd residence about 7 p.m. when Henry became upset, grabbing her by the neck and throwing her to the ground. She stated she fled with her son to the Airline Rd. address where four others were present. 

After Henry discovered her location, he threatened everyone in the house. The victim stated since Henry had a concealed carry permit and was known to carry a Glock pistol, she believed he would follow through with the threat.

Henry was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center with domestic abuse battery with child endangerment, six counts of aggravated assault with a firearm, and reckless operation of vehicle.
