Report: Man dragged wife out of house

A Choudrant man was arrested Friday after he allegedly dragged his wife out of their house.

Lincoln Parish deputies responded to a Tanner Road residence Friday regarding a disturbance. The caller reported his wife was having a nervous breakdown and he needed deputies to respond. 

During the investigation, deputies separated the two parties for interviews. The wife told officers she and her husband, Jeremiah Stormbreaker, 39, had been in an argument and then he had been verbally abusive toward her. She stated she attempted to say nothing at all to him but at one point he grabbed her and dragged her out of the house. Deputies observed bruises on her right arm. 

When another deputy approached to talk to the wife, Jeremiah Stormbreaker followed him. Stormbreaker was instructed to wait on the other side of the house while his wife was being into interviewed but he refused. He stated he needed to film her to make sure she was not lying. He repeatedly refused to stay away while deputies were interviewing his wife.

Stormbreaker admitted putting his hands on his wife and dragging her out the door. He stated he had been trying to get her to leave. Deputies told him he cannot force her to leave her own house. He was arrested for domestic abuse battery, resisting an officer, and obstruction of justice for refusing to obey instructions to stay away while his wife was being interviewed and attempting to hinder the investigation. He was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
