—Patrick Patterson, 41, of the 100 block of Pecan Lane in Patterson, was arrested at 9:01 a.m. Tuesday for second degree battery, driving while intoxicated, open alcoholic container, and expired driver’s license.

The deputy found the driver, Patterson, and smelled the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath. While speaking with Patterson, the deputy saw a drinking glass inside the vehicle, which had a strong odor of alcohol on it, Hebert said.

The deputy learned that Patterson intentionally slammed a female victim’s fingers in a door earlier that morning, he said. Patterson also made threats on the victim’s life, Hebert said.
