Domestic disturbance ends with arrest

The Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested a Ruston man early Wednesday morning after responding to a domestic disturbance on North Chatham Road.

About 1:30 a.m., deputies met with the victim who stated her boyfriend, Milton C. White, 63, had beaten and choked her. She said White became angry when he tried to take her purse and leave, and she would not allow it. The victim said White began hitting and choking her. 

Deputies observed a large welt on the victim’s head and two deep cuts on her arm. She also had red marks on her neck. The bedroom where the incident allegedly occurred showed signs of a struggle, including the door ripped out of its frame.

White appeared heavily intoxicated as he slurred his speech and swayed as he stood. He was arrested and a search revealed the victim’s credit card in his front pocket. The victim said he did not have permission to have it.

White was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for domestic abuse battery, domestic abuse battery by strangulation, simple criminal damage to property, and theft.

Bail was set at $31,500.
