Eunice man arrested for unauthorized use of a movable

JENNINGS- A Eunice man was arrested in Jennings for unauthorized use of a movable on Monday.

According to reports, deputies were advised the victim had loaned his vehicle to his son in January and the son refused to return it.

The son, David Keith Welch Jr., arrived at the residence demanding money for gas and an argument turned physical. Welch left the location when deputies were called but returned.

Deputies were able to locate Welch hiding in behind a barn on the property.

Welch was arrested for unauthorized use of a movable, simple battery and aggravated assault. He is being held in the parish jail with no bond.
