Man charged with assault and abuse

Shreveport police arrested a local man last weekend on charges of aggravated assault with a firearm and domestic abuse battery.

At about 11 p.m. Saturday, the suspect, 33-year-old Jami Sentell Glover of 3235 Penick St. in Shreveport, went to a residence in the 7200 block of Wilshire Drive. There, he reportedly pointed a semi-automatic handgun at Bertrum Sweet, stating, “You disrespected my bitch!”

Because Sweet was holding a 4-foot length of pipe, Glover also said, “Don’t bring a knife to a gun fight.”

A few hours later, at about 1:20 a.m. Sunday, a Shreveport police officer was flagged down for a domestic abuse battery incident.

T’Tonea Martin of 3235 Penick St. reported that Glover physically assaulted her.

The victim told the officer that Glover physically assaulted her after she tried to stop him from leaving the house.

Martin suffered multiple injuries to her face. Both lips were cut. She was holding ice to the right side of her face and refused medical treatment.

Glover was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center.

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.
