Baton Rouge woman threatened to 'whip' neighbor, set house 'in flames' after complaint filed about dog, police say _lowres

Kaiasha White, 33, was arrested on counts of simple assault and communicating false information of planned arson.

A Baton Rouge woman was arrested Monday, accused of threatening to assault her neighbor and burn her house down in November when the neighbor called animal control about the woman’s dog.

The neighbor told Kaiasha White, 33, on Nov. 17 that she called animal control about White’s dog, according to a Baton Rouge police report. The neighbor said she runs a day care at her home and was worried the dog might bite the children, who often play outside.

White became upset and told the neighbor that if animal control takes her dog away, she would “whip her ass” and burn the neighbor’s house down, the report says.

White said she would wait until the neighbor left home and that when she returns, her house “will be in flames,” the report says. White then got into her vehicle and left.

Police were unable to contact White so a warrant was issued for her arrest.

White, of 6274 Flag St., was booked into Parish Prison on counts of simple assault and communicating false information of planned arson.
