Police arrest local man after threatening girlfriend

By Bonnie Culverhouse

A local man drew a flag from Minden Police after a scuffle following Monday’s NFL game.

Danny Allen, 62, of the 400 block of Winford St., Minden, was arrested for simple assault and three active warrants.

Chief Jared McIver said that following the Dallas-Tampa Bay game, the complainant contacted police saying her boyfriend threatened to kill her.

“The female and Allen, her live-in boyfriend, made a bet on the football game,” McIver said. “After the game, she went into the bathroom to run bath water. Allen told her the water was too hot and she was trying to ‘scald’ him.”

Allen was reportedly angry and the complainant threatened to call police.

“Allen told her this would be the ‘last time you call the police, I will kill you, this is a good night to die,’” the chief said. “The complainant became afraid, left the residence and went to the back porch of an abandoned residence where she sat for about 45 minutes before calling us.”

McIver said Sgt. Jason Smith answered the call and arrested Allen.
