He said they had been separated and he had just informed her he wanted a divorce, when she went into his bedroom, pulled out a gun and discharged it. He took the gun from her, unloaded it and tried to get her to talk but she was very upset and made him think she wanted to harm herself.

Fight: A man standing outside of the Babalouie’s Bar flagged down an officer and said that a man allegedly knocked a woman off a bar stool and had fled the scene. He was confronted in the parking lot and displayed a gun to the witness. Officers initiated a high-risk stop in the bar parking lot and detained a man with no incident and there where no firearms found. The suspect’s girlfriend approached police and said that she had splashed a beer on him and then tripped on her bar stool as she tried to walk away. She was then swarmed by a group of men in the parking lot, who then confronted her boyfriend.

There was no evidence of a crime, but the man was trespassed from Babalouie’s for 30 days.
