Property damage leads to arrest in Dubach

Police arrested a Ruston woman Friday after she reportedly damaged a door after being told to leave a Dubach apartment.

Dubach Police responded to a call of a fight in progress at Dubach Apartments Friday evening. The lease holder from the apartment said Ericka R. Gatson, 22, had punched a hole in two of the doors in the complex. Gatson was reportedly told she needed to move out when she kicked the front door until it burst open.

After her arrest and advisement of her rights, Gatson reportedly told the Dubach officer she did in fact commit the damage inside the apartment.

Gatson was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for simple criminal damage to property.
