A man from Pierre Part was arrested and charged after allegedly hitting his child’s mother in the face.
Assumption Parish Sheriff’s deputies arrested Garrett Michael Dugas, 32, on felony charges July 21.
Deputies were called to a home on the 3800 block of LA 70. The woman called and told law enforcement Dugas went to her home and took their child. Officials say the child’s mother followed Dugas until they reached a stop sign.
At that point, Dugas allegedly walked up to the woman’s driver-side window and hit her in the face. Deputies went to the home and after speaking with Dugas, the deputies arrested him.
Dugas was arrested and booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center. He was charged with domestic abuse battery with child endangerment and criminal mischief.
Dugas remains in jail. His bond is pending.
