Police arrested a woman this week who allegedly tried to run over her husband during an argument at Plunk’s Self Storage in West Monroe, La. Loretta Castillo, 44, was charged with domestic-abuse battery and domestic-abuse aggravated assault as a result of the altercation, which occurred on Sept. 9. Bail has yet to be set, according to the source.
Castillo and her husband, who ran a window-tinting business out of a unit at storage facility, were on the property together when the husband decided to help an ex-girlfriend, the source reported. Castillo became angry, grabbing her husband by the shirt and attempting to strangle him. She then tried to run him over with her sports-utility vehicle five times, and later attempted to ram his Corvette, which was parked at the back of the facility.
The victim’s ex-girlfriend, who witnessed the fight, contacted the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office. An arrest warrant for Castillo was filed with the court on Sept. 19. Detectives spoke with Castillo, a resident of Downsville, La., over the phone and arranged a meeting with her, but she didn’t show.
Plunk’s Self Storage operates two facilities in West Monroe, La., one on Jonesboro Road and another on Rock Hill Drive, according to Google search. The source did not indicate which facility was the site of the incident.
