A Bogalusa man was arrested Wednesday on an outstanding warrant for domestic abuse and other charges, according to Chief Deputy Mike Haley of the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office.

While patrolling on Spring Valley Road south of Bogalusa on Wednesday, a Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy encountered Terry Vonsha Buckhanan, 23, a resident of Avenue E, Haley said.

Buckhanan was wanted on an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court for a domestic abuse with strangulation charge. Buckhanan was arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail.

Haley said that Buckhanan has previous stays in the Washington Parish Jail, beginning in 2017 when he faced multiple charges including carjacking, robbery, battery and eight counts of vehicle burglary. This was followed by a 2018 arrest for probation violation and second degree battery. Later in 2018, he was remanded to jail by a 22nd Judicial District Court Judge.

Haley said he was arrested again in 2019 for parole violation. In 2020, he faced charges of domestic abuse with strangulation, resisting an officer and disturbing the peace. In March earlier this year, he was arrested for possession of illegal drugs, resisting an officer, obstruction of justice and disturbing the peace in a violent manner.

“Mr. Buckhanan seems determined to continue his pattern of being arrested,” Washington Parish Sheriff Randy Seal said. “I’m not certain what issues he has, but anger management seems to be one of them. Good job, deputy!”
