Grambling -- The newly-elected Gibsland Police Chief is accused in a domestic abuse incident that happened just hours before election polls opened.

Grambling Police say they responded to a domestic disturbance call at a home in the 100 block of North Main Street in Grambling around 2 a.m. on Saturday, November 16th.

When police arrived, they say Gibsland Police Chief Gregory Pickens and his ex-girlfriend had got into a fight during an argument.

Police say Pickens allegedly broke some items and loaded several items that he bought during their relationship onto his pickup truck. Pickens drove away from the home before police arrived.

After an investigation, an arrest warrant was issued for Pickens. He was taken to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.

Pickens was charged with domestic abuse battery, criminal damage to property and theft.

His bond was set at $4,250 and was ordered to stay away from the victim.

Pickens won the Police Chief election on Saturday with 60% of the vote.
