Local property dispute leads to assault arrest
A property dispute between relatives allegedly turned ugly on Wednesday morning.
According to the arrest affidavit, Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call just before noon on Wednesday on private property in Dubach.
LPSO Public Information Officer Maj. Stephen Williams said the mother of Grady Douglas, 70, of Bernice, had recently died and he was taking possession of her property. Several of his nieces and nephews reportedly had items stored in a shed on the property and Douglas had shown up and begun to throw the items on the ground.
