HUNTINGBURG — A Sunday-evening report of a domestic battery resulted in a man’s arrest on a felony charge.
The Huntingburg Police Department was called to a north-side residence at 6:40 p.m. A female victim told officers her ex-husband, Travis Delagrange, 31, Marion, verbally assaulted her when bringing back her children. Then, according to the victim, Delagrange grabbed her by the back of the neck and threw her into the roadway.
Police said the victim had marks that matched her account.
Delagrange had left in his vehicle before officers arrived but, a short time later, a Dubois County Sheriff’s Department deputy conducted a traffic stop north of Jasper and took Delagrange into custody.
Authorities booked Delagrange into the Dubois County Security Center at 9 p.m. on a Level 6 felony count of domestic battery. The charge was a felony because a child was present during the battery, according to police.
A Level 6 felony under Indiana’s new criminal code was a Class D felony prior to July 1.
