Fight over house chores lands couple in Ouachita Parish jail
A lover's squabble over cleaning lands two people in the Ouachita Parish Jail.
The incident happened Wednesday in the 700 block of West Monroe.
According to police reports, Debra Lynn Jackson woke up her drunk boyfriend to help clean their house.
At that point, the boyfriend allegedly grabbed a garden stick and threatened to hit her with it, when he suddenly slapped her in the side of the head. Jackson says she then grabbed the garden stick and hit him with it.
When officers tried to question the highly intoxicated man, he allegedly said he wanted the woman out of his house. Both the boyfriend and Jackson were jailed.
