BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A woman is facing charges after she allegedly caused damage to a car and Baton Rouge home.

On February 11, Baton Rouge Police responded to a home in the 1700 block of Emmaline Drive at about 10 a.m. in response to reports that a suspect slapped a child.

According to a BRPD Probable Cause report, 29-year-old Latonya Thomas allegedly got into an argument with the child’s father and threw a flashlight into the back window of his car. Authorities say Thomas left the scene afterwards.

Thomas allegedly returned at about 6:45 that evening and kicked a foot-wide hole in one of the residence’s wall, the BRPD says.

Police reports say when Thomas was leaving for the second time, she allegedly rammed her vehicle into another vehicle, damaging the taillights and bumper.

Thomas was arrested Friday morning and charged with simple criminal damage to property and simple battery. Her bond is set at $15,000.
