Latosha Lee Douglas, 46, 1304 E. Market St., Warsaw, is charged with intimidation with a deadly weapon, a level 5 felony; domestic battery with a child under 16 present, a level 6 felony; and domestic battery, a class A misdemeanor.
On Sept. 5, a Warsaw Police officer responded to a domestic disturbance at a residence. Upon arrival at the scene, officers witnessed Douglas yelling while two people tried to calm her down. A man exited the home and was asked to wait outside by officers.
According to court documents, Douglas was angry with the man and said she wanted to kill him for statements he said to her. She also allegedly said she would stab the man.
A child at the scene said Douglas entered their room and yelled at them, which led to the man entering the room and telling Douglas to calm down. Douglas and the man began arguing.
Officers were informed that during the argument, Douglas punched the man twice in the face. The man said he had a bump on his jaw. He noted that he never saw a knife but said he heard two people at the home reference a knife. The man also said he heard Douglas say she was going to stab him.
One of the witnesses told officers that Douglas picked up a knife but had it down at her side. A second witness said a child was knocked to the floor during the altercation.
Douglas has an initial hearing at 1 p.m. Oct. 21, in Kosciusko Superior Court Three.
