LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A 41-year-old Florien man was indicted Thursday on charges of false imprisonment, domestic abuse battery and drug possession.

Authorities arrested said Bob Corky Cox in July at a Lake Charles motel.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Cox held a woman against her will, denied her use of a phone and threatened to kill her when she tried to leave.

"Deputies discovered Cox to be in possession of over $5,000 of cash and several pills," Myers said in a news release. "Deputies also recovered marijuana and drug paraphernalia from inside the motel room. After being placed under arrest, Cox became irate, kicked the back window of the deputy’s patrol car and broke a camera."
