The Lake Charles City Police went to the home of Calcasieu Parish Deputy Louis Boling today around noon and placed him under arrest for domestic abuse battery.

For the past 12 years, Boling has worked as a correctional officer before being terminated today by Sheriff Tony Mancuso.

The Lake Charles PD continues the investigation following this statement from the Sheriff: "I will not tolerate physical violence committed by a deputy, I hold all of my deputies to a higher standard."
