Couple arrested on domestic abuse charges

By Bonnie Culverhouse

Webster Parish Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a Springhill location last week when a couple reportedly engaged in a fight.

Robert R. Wells, 50, of Frierson was arrested for domestic abuse battery and Danielle Marie Ball, 20, (no photo available) of Monica Lane, Springhill, was arrested for domestic abuse aggravated assault.

Sheriff Jason Parker said deputies encountered Wells in the front yard of the Monica Lane residence.

“After speaking with him, they talked to Mrs. Ball who said Wells pushed her through a window and threw items at her,” Parker said. “Deputies determined that Wells had committed domestic abuse battery.”

Parker said Wells told deputies Ball pulled a knife on him and tried to stab him.

“She admitted to having the knife in her hand,” said the sheriff.

Both were transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
