Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre announced the arrest of Kip Leblanc, 20, of Thibodaux on May 8, 2018. Shortly after 2 p.m. on Tuesday, May 8, deputies responded to a disturbance on Choctaw Road in reference to a woman having been struck by a vehicle. Upon arrival, deputies observed bystanders providing aid to a woman in her 40s who was lying on the side of the road. Through investigation at the scene, deputies learned Leblanc had pushed the woman down and then rolled over her legs in a pickup truck as he fled the scene. She was later taken to the hospital for treatment. Deputies also learned that prior to that incident, he had punched another woman in the face, knocking her unconscious. This woman had been living with Leblanc for some time until recently. A short time later, deputies located Leblanc and he was arrested without incident. Leblanc was booked into the Lafourche Parish Detention Center on charges of Aggravated Second Degree Battery and Domestic Abuse Battery. He was released Tuesday evening after posting $52,500 bond, and he has been ordered to stay away from the victims.
