DOYLINE — A fight between a couple reportedly over some beer landed the two in handcuffs following a physical altercation.
Webster Parish Sheriff’s authorities say Walter Raymond Stiles, 44, of the 100 block of Hickory Hollow in Doyline, and Theresa Fisher, 41, of the same address, were taken into custody for the offense of domestic abuse battery, with Stiles under arrest for domestic abuse battery with strangulation.
According to reports, Deputy John Lewis Jr. responded to the Doyline address Thursday, May 12, in reference to a dispute.
When he arrived, he made contact with Stiles, who reportedly told him they were grilling hamburgers when Fisher asked him how much beer he’d purchased for the night. He reportedly told Lewis he gave a sarcastic answer and that’s when she hit him. He says he wrapped his hands around her neck to keep her from hitting him, the deputy said.
In turn, Fisher disputed Stiles’ story, reportedly saying he hit her first, and he had his hands around her neck, choking her. According to reports, she says she hit him to get him off of her.
Lewis noted that Stiles’ left eye area was swelling and some light red marks across the front of Fisher’s neck. Lewis also observed a small cut on her lip.
Both subjects were taken into custody and transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center for booking. Bond for Fisher was set at $5,000, and bond has not yet been set for Stiles.
