Bossier-Webster Parish Chief Asst. D.A. arrested

BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - Bossier Webster District Attorney Schuyler Marvin says he wants to watch the video for himself, to gauge what really happened with his Chief Assistant D.A., that led to his arrest this weekend.

Marvin confirms that Charles "Sherb" Sentell is on paid leave tonight.

Bossier City Police arrested Sentell just after 1am Saturday morning at Horseshoe Casino.

He faces a charge of domestic abuse, after police said that he grabbed his wife's arm.

Sentell is out on $1500 bond.

Marvin says he also wants to hear more about the claims of public intimidation, or whether Sentell had simply identified himself and informed officers what's at stake for him.

In a handwritten statement, Marvin said, "this conduct, if true, is uncharacteristic of Lt. Col. Sentell."

Marvin added that Sentell is a Desert Storm and Iraq War veteran in the Army Reserves and has been an Assistant D.A. ten years.
