Beating in-law lands local in jail

Punching his father-in-law has landed a Doyline man in jail on multiple charges.

Bryan Ray McQuiston, 40, of the 200 block of Buddy Carter Place was arrested for disturbing the peace, battery of an infirm and resisting an officer by Webster Parish deputies Joe Morgan, George Salsberry and Luster Coleman.

Investigators say after McQuiston was charged for disturbing the peace, he showed up at his in-law's residence.

"He went to his 63-year-old father-in-law's trailer and started punching him in the face, causing serous injury to his chin," said Webster Parish Sheriff Gary Sexton. "The injured man was taken to Minden Medical Center by ambulance with a large cut to his chin that needed stitches."

McQuiston reportedly gave the deputies trouble by refusing to get into a patrol unit. Once he was inside, he was taken to the courthouse where he was read his rights and booked.

DWI Arrest

In an unrelated incident, sheriff's deputies John Byrd and Lt. Jack Davis arrested 24-year-old Timothy C. Rupert of Haynesville for driving while intoxicated (first offense,) reckless operation and open container.

"Rupert was traveling south on Hwy. 159 when he came to the intersection of that road and Hwy. 2," Sexton said. "He failed to stop, made a right turn on Hwy. 2 and began spinning tires and fish-tailing as he headed west on Hwy. 2."

According to reports, deputies could smell alcohol on the suspect and administered a sobriety field test which he reportedly failed.

"He was transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center, where he was given a breath analysis on the Intoxilyzer 5000," Sexton said. "Rupert registered .142 percent and was booked into jail."
