MANDEVILLE - A Baton Rouge man was arrested after allegedly pulling over to the side of a highway and putting a gun to his girlfriend's head before threatening to kill her.

St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Department said 19-year-old Jarmine Alexander and his girlfriend got into an argument Tuesday during a car ride from Baton Rouge to Bogalusa.
