Domestic Dispute Leads To Police Standoff, Crash
A story that made national news talks about a man who has surrendered to police after a standoff and crash following a domestic dispute. KULR8 reports.
Police in Bossier City, LA, received a domestic argument complaint a few days ago and were searching for the suspect. They found him driving on Benton Road and began a high-speed chase through the streets. Speeds reached 95 mph during the chase.
The suspect crashed into several vehicles near Airline and Shed Road. Officers had to perform a pit maneuver to stop the suspect’s pickup. These are special maneuvers meant to stop a fleeing vehicle and are quite dangerous.
Once the truck was stopped, a woman and a three-month-old child fled the vehicle. Police took them to the hospital for minor injuries. Three others in the wreck also had to be taken to the hospital for observation.
The man wanted for questioning refused to leave the vehicle and began a police standoff that lasted two hours. The woman who fled warned police that the man had access to a gun. When police fired bean-bag rounds at him, that’s when he surrendered.
He has been charged with kidnapping, aggravated assault, and illegal use of a firearm. More charges are pending. Detectives believe the woman and child were held against their wills.
