HUNTINGBURG — Police arrested a man they had been requested to make a welfare check on late Monday night.
A female at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center’s emergency room requested the welfare check at 11:19 p.m. on Luis E. Rodriguez, 25, 307 E. 17th St., Huntingburg, according to authorities.
The request and subsequent investigation resulted in Rodriguez’s arrest by the Huntingburg Police Department after it was determined an argument had turned physical. During the incident, according to authorities, Rodriguez is accused of, at one point, choking the female and preventing her from leaving the residence.
Authorities booked Rodriguez into the Dubois County Security Center at 3:27 a.m. today on preliminary charges that included Level 6 felony counts of strangulation and criminal confinement and a misdemeanor count of domestic battery.
