Fender bender leads to fists

Grambling Police arrested a man Monday after he punched a motorist who backed into his sister’s car.

Officers responded to B. T. Woodard Circle regarding a minor vehicle accident. The driver said he was backing out of a parking space and collided with a vehicle parked behind him that was not in a parking space. He said he contacted the owner of the vehicle, but a man came at him stating, “You hit my sister’s car.” The man then punched him in the face and went in an apartment.

The alleged attacker, Emorris Brantley, 20, of Grambling, said his sister told him of the accident. He punched the victim and then went back inside to put on his shoes.

Brantley was arrested for simple battery and booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
