(1/9/19) The Union Parish Sheriff’s Office has arrested a West Monroe woman for two alleged felony counts.

36 year old Misty Lynn Ragus of West Monroe, La. was arrested January 5, 2019 on a warrant for her arrest over the Christmas holidays.

Deputies say that Ragus had agreed with her ex-husband for their daughter to spend Christmas Eve with him and his wife. However, Ragus apparently changed her mind and drove to the Downsville residence to take her daughter back.

Sheriff Dusty Gates reported that the couple stated as Ragus was driving away, she swerved her vehicle at them and they had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit.

Ragus has been booked into the Ouachita Correctional Center and her total bond on the two charges was set at $25,000.
