Christian Provost, 21, a resident of Deerfield Road in Folsom, was recently jailed in Washington Parish on charges of domestic abuse battery with strangulation and domestic abuse-child endangerment, according to Chief Deputy Mike Haley of the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Haley said that Provost was arrested by WPSO Deputy Norman Taylor, who responded on Friday, Sept. 4, to a rural area southwest of Franklinton after a female had been allegedly physically assaulted. After listening to the details of the alleged assault and observing the woman’s injuries and noting the presence of a child during the battery, Taylor obtained a warrant for Provost’s arrest.

After learning that a warrant had been issued for his arrest, Provost turned himself in to the Washington Parish Jail on Wednesday. He was arrested by Corrections Deputy Derek Dominguez and booked into the jail. Bond was set at $10,000.

“Out of control emotions never lead to a good ending,” Washington Parish Sheriff Randy Seal said. “Mr. Provost seems to be a prime example. Many thanks to our officers who, once again, did an excellent job.”
