NEW ORLEANS,LA—A New Orleans musician was being held on $300,000 bond Sunday after being charged with hitting his girlfriend with a guitar and choking her.
An Orleans Parish judge raised the bond for 37-year-old Dylan Francis Brooks on Friday from $210,000.
Brooks listed his occupation in a police report as "musician," but he's also worked at a salon.
Investigators said Brooks caused a 5-inch cut on his girlfriend's head when he hit her with the guitar during an argument Wednesday.
Court records said he also choked her, allegedly saying: "I'll have to kill you because you'll send me to jail."
It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
He's charged with attempted second-degree murder, false imprisonment and tampering with evidence.
