A Minden man has been arrested by Webster Parish Sheriff’s deputies on multiple drug and abuse charges.
Shaviairrie Juwan Murray, 23, of the 300 block of Shane Drive, has been charged with domestic abuse battery with child endangerment, illegal carrying of weapons with a controlled dangerous substance, criminal damage to property, simple possession of Sch. I CDS and a fugitive from Claiborne Parish.
Sheriff Jason Parker said his deputy, Anthony Eli Hay, was dispatched to the Shane Drive location for a report of a domestic altercation.
“When he arrived, Deputy Hay made contact with a victim who said her baby’s father, with whom she lives, had just left the area,” Parker said. “Minden PD stopped the vehicle at Pine and Main streets and the driver was identified as Murray.”
The deputy spoke with Murray and read him his rights. He reportedly told the deputy he had struck the victim with his elbow and pushed her off the bed, causing her to fall on their one-year-old child.
“Murray also admitted that he threw the victim’s phone twice,” said the sheriff. “Deputy Ben Allen was on scene with the victim, and her statement was consistent with what Murray told Deputy Hay.”
During Murray’s traffic stop, suspected synthetic Marijuana was reportedly found, being 23.1g.
“Murray had this contraband in his underwear on his person,” Parker said. “Also, in Murray’s front right pockets was a Glock 22 that was loaded with 12 rounds of ammunition.
Murray was booked into Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
