A Minden man racked up several charges after reportedly accusing his neighbor of sleeping with his wife.

Gerry D. Chism, 40, of the 1000 block of Tillman Drive, was arrested Tuesday, Sept. 8 and charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, disturbing the peace, simple assault and remaining after forbidden. Bond was set at $126,300.

His wife, Tracie Rene Hattaway, 42, of the same address, was arrested the same day and charged with interfering with an officer.

Minden police chief Steve Cropper says the incident began when Chism went to his neighbor’s house and began banging on his door.
