The warrant was issued in December of 2016 following an investigation into an assault that occurred at a residence on Canal Road in Bayou Vista. Deputies collected evidence that Grow threatened bodily harm to a male victim and that Grow was yelling causing a disturbance in the neighborhood. Grow was transported to the St. Mary Parish Law Enforcement Center for booking. No bail is set.
