Domestic call prompts drug charges

Ruston Police arrested a Grambling man on numerous charges Sunday after responding to a disturbance call.

Officers responded to a South Sparta Street residence when the suspect was found leaving in a vehicle. Ladarious Maxwell, 32, was detained while a woman in his car and others at the residence were interviewed.

The woman in Maxwell’s car allegedly went to the home where she confronted Maxwell and another woman. During the ensuing altercation, Maxwell struck the woman at the home in the face, knocking her to the ground.

Officers found the woman was bleeding from a head wound.

Maxwell was arrested and during a search, a large bottle containing suspected narcotics was found on him.

Maxwell was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for possession of marijuana and ecstasy with intent to distribute, possession of methamphetamine, possession of cocaine, domestic abuse battery, driving under suspension, and expired license plate.

Bail was set at $40,000.
