A Minden man was arrested last week for threatening his ex-girlfriend.

Dominic Washington, 30, of the 500 block of MLK Dr., Minden, is charged with intimidating, impeding or injuring a witness, domestic abuse aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

According to Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper, Washington was arrested December 1 for domestic abuse battery. The two had been living apart for two months.

“When officers arrived at his ex-girlfriend’s house, Washington was brandishing a black handgun and telling her she had better drop charges,” Cropper said.
