Arrest made on domestic call

A Choudrant man was arrested Wednesday after an investigation by the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies met with a woman who said Walter C. Freeman, Jr., 62, had struck her with a broomstick and pushed her down at their residence. When she fell, she suffered a deep cut on her forearm and an injury to her head.

Deputies examined the cut and saw a knot on the woman’s right temple.

Freeman was questioned at his residence. He said he fought with the victim as she attempted to leave the residence with his dog and both sets of car keys. Freeman said when he reached for the keys, the victim accidentally fell down and received her injuries. He said it was not intentional but accidental.

Freeman was arrested for domestic abuse battery and booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
