Domestic dispute turns violent

A Choudrant man was arrested last week after he allegedly assaulted his wife during a dispute.

Lincoln Parish deputies responded to a La. Highway 145 address regarding a domestic disturbance in progress about 8 p.m. Friday night. The suspect, Ronald J. Young, 42, left the scene before deputies arrived.

Young was spotted traveling in a white Mazda on Elm Street in Choudrant and was stopped and taken back to the scene.

The victim reported her husband woke up in an angry mood and they argued earlier in the day. He allegedly punched the victim four times in the face with a closed fist. Deputies saw a red mark on the left side of the victim’s face and a knot on the left side of her head she said was caused by Young throwing a picture frame and striking her head.

Young was taken to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center and booked for domestic abuse battery.
