Since the incident, detectives with the Shreveport Police Domestic Violence Unit procured a warrant for Payne’s arrest.
On Monday, Payne was taken into police custody following his surrender to authorities.
Payne has been charged with a single count of domestic abuse battery aggravated assault, along with a single charge of seconddegree battery.
