Man booked in pregnant woman’s beating

East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s deputies on Thursday arrested a man wanted on accusations he choked and kicked his pregnant girlfriend about a week ago.

Deputies booked Darrell Zhiere Johnson, 18, 14141 Azalea Park Ave., Baton Rouge, into Parish Prison on counts of attempted second-degree feticide and domestic abuse battery, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

Johnson is accused of slapping, choking and kicking the seven months pregnant woman in the stomach Feb. 20 during an argument, the affidavit says.
