HOLT – A man who went to his girlfriend’s house and dragged her out by the hair in front of her mother was charged with battery and resisting arrest.

The 31-year-old man was towing the woman along the ground by her hair when witnesses intervened. He let go, but ordered the woman to get into his truck, which she did voluntarily, according to his Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.

When deputies went to the suspect’s house, he and the victim barricaded themselves inside, refusing to cooperate or exit the house, the report said.
