EBRSO lieutenant arrested for domestic abuse battery

An EBRSO lieutenant was arrested by Addis Police officers Saturday night. It started around 10pm in West Baton Rouge Parish when Addis officers responded to a domestic call at a home in the Sugarmill neighborhood.

Addis Police Chief Ricky Anderson said a woman said that her wife Kimberly Williams, an East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant, “was punching her while enroute home from a party.”

“The victim jumped out of the vehicle and fled on foot upon arriving at home,” said Chief Anderson. “The victim advised dispatch that the suspect, Kimberly Williams, was leaving the home in a marked EBRSO unit assigned to her.”

That’s when Addis Police contacted the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office. Her management told her she needed to call an officer or they would find her unit by using the GPS. Williams then called an officer and returned to Addis for questioning.

Officials said the physical evidence was consistent with the victim’s statement.

The EBRSO lieutenant was questioned and arrested. She’s charged with one count of domestic abuse battery.

Per procedure, EBRSO has placed Lt. Williams on administrative leave as of Sunday, Dec. 18th.

“Lt. Kim Williams was arrested this weekend out of parish in relation to a domestic incident. Lt. Williams works in recruiting, has been with the office for 15 years, and is currently on administrative leave pending review,” said EBRSO spokeswoman Casey Hicks.
