A Lafayette man was arrested after a witness said that he dragged a female by her hair.

Anthony Hood, 30, faces multiple charges following the incident, which took place last Thursday.

According to arrest reports, Lafayette Police Department Sgt. Derrick Gann was dispatched to a Hannah Drive address for a possible domestic incident.

Gann was told by a witness that Hood drug a female out of a vehicle and into an apartment approximately five minutes before Gann arrived.

As Gann approached the apartment, he heard a female screaming, and fellow officer Elliot Sandifer saw Hood look out a window as they knocked on the door.

Another officer, Byron Butcher, kicked in the door in order to gain entry in an attempt to ensure the safety of the female.

Once the officers were inside, Hood walked out of the bedroom and asked for a warrant, after he had been told to get down numerous times. The officers had to physically gain control of Hood in order to detain him.

During the ensuing investigation, Hood admitted to the domestic assault and did admit to drinking vodka and beer prior to the dispute.

Hood faces charges of domestic violence, driving under the influence and resisting arrest.

His bond was set at $7,500, and his court date is slated for Jan. 15.
