BAKER, LA (WAFB) -

A man was arrested after a woman told deputies he threatened her life, grabbed her gun and then fired two times.  

According to the probable cause report submitted by the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office, the incident happened on Wednesday, June 18 at roughly 9 p.m. It started when deputies were sent to investigate a call about shots fired in Baker on Old Baker Road.

"Upon arriving to the area, [Kerri C. Haynes] was seen running behind trailers and eventually found lying near a trailer," the deputy noted in the report.

The victim told deputies she was involved in a verbal argument with Haynes. She claims he went into her purse and took her .38 caliber revolver. At that point she ran outside and he allegedly followed her.

"The victim then stated that he told her that he would kill her and beat her to where no one would recognize her," the deputy noted. "At this point [Haynes] fired one shot in an unknown direction. The victim stated that she then ran and heard another shot go off."

Additional witnesses told the deputy that they saw Haynes fire the gun into the ground near the victim's vehicle.

After a check of Hayne's history, the deputy learned he is a convicted felon. One charge noted was for simple burglary in 1997.

Haynes was arrested and charged with felon in possession of a firearm, illegal discharge of a firearm, and aggravated assault. He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
