A man from the Evans community in Vernon Parish is arrested for Second Degree Domestic Abuse Battery.  Deputies say 32-year-old Curtis Fletcher admitted to hitting a woman, who was later treated at a Leesville hospital for several injuries to her face.

The Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office was contacted by emergency room personnel at Byrd Hospital in Leesville.  Medical staff advised that a female was in the emergency room undergoing medical treatment for injuries which the victim indicated she had received in an incident involving Domestic Violence.

Deputies and Detectives responded to the emergency room where they interviewed and photographed the victim who had significant injuries to the area of her face.

Fletcher was arrested Saturday and booked into the Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office on Second Degree Domestic Abuse Battery.  No bond has been set as of the date of this release.

Under a new state law, authorities can ask for a greater bond in a felony domestic abuse case.
