Domestic incident leads to arrest

A Choudrant man was arrested Monday afternoon after Lincoln Parish deputies responded to a disturbance in progress on Harris Road. 

Deputies found a woman sitting at the dining table crying hysterically. She said her boyfriend, Michael C. Alexander, Jr., 24, took her phone and prescription medication. He went through her phone and found a number for another man she had texted. She said she attempted to get the phone back and Alexander shoved up her against the wall. Alexander pinned her down and would not let her go. She said she tried to get away, but Alexander wouldn’t let her and picked her up and held her upside down by her feet. She said the only way to get him off of her was by biting him. She continued biting him until he walked away, and she called 911. 

Deputies saw red marks on the victim’s arms and a scrape on her left leg. 

Alexander was asked to explain what happened. He stated the victim was trying to get a cell phone she had given him. He told her she wasn’t getting the phone and she began biting him several times. Alexander stated he should’ve left the house but did not. 

Alexander was arrested and transported to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center where he was booked for domestic abuse battery and an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in Third District Court on earlier domestic abuse battery charge.
