2:36 a.m.: Charles William Monteer, 39, of the 2800 block of Highway TT, was arrested after officers responded to the 1900 block of South Lamine Avenue in reference to gunshots. The victim said a subject had set off an explosion inside his vehicle. That subject was identified, arrested and placed on a 24-hour old pending state charges of knowingly burning or exploding, first-degree property damage, and fourth-degree aggravated domestic assault.
8:16 a.m.: Officers were dispatched to the 1900 block of South Montgomery Avenue in reference to a domestic assault. The suspect had departed, but the victim said she and the suspect had gotten into an argument and the suspect began yelling. As the victim yelled out the window for help, the suspect threw water at her. The victim was again splashed with water, and she broke his “vase.” The suspect grabbed her and choked the victim to keep her from yelling out the window again. There were no marks on the victim. A report was made and the victim requested charges be sent to the prosecutor.
