Through investigation, deputies learned the woman was at Galliano’s residence on the evening of Tuesday, January 1. At around midnight, detectives learned Galliano allegedly forced the woman into his bedroom and kept her there against her will. When the victim told Galliano she wanted to leave, Galliano advised her that he had a gun in drawer in the room and threatened to use it on her and her family.

Galliano was arrested on warrants for forcible rape (including sodomy) and false imprisonment while armed with a dangerous weapon. He was transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux where he is being held in lieu of $250,000 bond.
