A Destrehan man was arrested on June 14 for firing a gun in a residence during an argument and was also charged in connection with a 2009 incident where he allegedly beat and kidnapped his girlfriend.

Clinton L. Brown, 40, of 251 Meadows Drive, was arrested after neighbors called police when they heard shots fired.

No one was injured during the incident and when police arrived, they identified Brown as a person wanted on two separate warrants - one that was issued in August 2009 and another from June 2010.

Brown was charged with simple kidnapping, auto theft, simple criminal damage under $500, simple battery, two counts of resisting an officer, battery on a police officer, illegal use of weapons and felony carrying of illegal weapons.

In August 2009, Brown allegedly broke a window on his live-in girlfriend’s vehicle. He then forced the victim into the vehicle where he struck her several times in the face and drove around for approximately three hours before bringing her home. Brown then ordered the victim to take a shower and he fled the residence in the victim’s vehicle, according to Sgt. Dwayne LaGrange with the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office.

The argument that led to Brown’s arrest was with the same live-in girlfriend.

“We’re pleased to have him off the streets before somebody was seriously hurt,” LaGrange said.
