A Sierra Vista man accused of domestic violence and discharging a weapon at a structure has been arrested in Louisiana.

The U.S. Marshal's Service arrested Herman Hester, 21, in connection with incidents over a two-day span in October in which he's accused of striking his girlfriend and shooting at her father.

According to a news release from the Sierra Vista Police Department, Hester attacked his girlfriend on Oct. 27 at her home in the 2200 block of Las Brisas Way. He allegedly struck her face and pushed her into a wall hard enough to cause damage to the wall. In the same incident, Hester allegedly tried to burn the victim's clothing, which was found piled on the floor and appeared to have been set on fire. Hester allegedly fled the scene and officers could not find him.

The next day, the victim's father took his grandchildren to an address on East Brown Drive to meet with Hester, who is their father. Hester and the victim's father began to argue and Hester allegedly fired a gun several times in the direction of the victim's father. According to the news release, one of the bullets struck the vehicle the children were in at the time. Again, Hester fled the scene prior to the arrival of police officers.

Hester was charged with domestic violence assault, domestic violence disorderly conduct, domestic violence criminal damage, arson, and three counts of discharge of a firearm at a structure.
